Notice how everytime the politicians talk about cutting spending, they never cut anything of theirs. It's always the programs that benefit the Americaqn people that are the first to be cut.

The way it is set up now, once they are elected they are set up for life! Why bother to keep promises and be concerned for constituents? I do not know if there is a way to fire or impeach a congressman

What Affects our nation, should affect our nations elected leaders. I love this. It is leveling the playing field. Being elected to serve our country should not be better than winning the lottery, when those who volunteer to serve as soldiers/protect our country don't get better than winning the lottery.
