Article 5 of the constitution allows the people to do this but it will take people to participate to get it done

We that service get some Benefits, the more years the better the Benefits... Congress should get a retirement plan just like A Veteran that's it!

That's for sure, why should they get so much? For doing not much.

When the government was created, the offices of the house and senate were not meant to be a life time of benefits, they were supposed to do there time in office and then when it was over go back into the work force and be a contributing factor...no life time benefits or wages..and I think this should be put back in place and term limits for all offices of two and if they miss so many votes they should be removed.

You are historically correct. And according to the Constitution, if the voters believe that their government is not working in their best interest, they can be fired by the people they are so quickly trying to hoodwink. And I agree with your solutions.

They should be required to have social security like the rest of us, as well as health benefits that are no different that the average American. If they want retirement they should have a 401K like the average American. They aren't special, they work for US!

ITS UNACCEPTABLE THE WAY CONGRESS AND ALL OF DC ARE LOOTING THIS COUNTRY AND FILLING THEIR POCKETS WITH OUR HARD EARNED MONEY......OBAMA JUST GAVE THEM ALL A RAISE......BEFORE THEY VOTED ON HIS WAY FOR THE FISCAL CLIFF! THEIR PERKS AND BENEFITS AS WELL AS PAY ARE DOWNRIGHT IMMORAL! EVERYDAY WE ARE PAYING THEM MORE AND THEY ARE TAKING AWAY OUR FREEDOMS!

I concur. This amendment will finally bring them to heel. When a consistent grade of F - is obtained, as the coffers of their employers (We the People) are looted for undeserved pay and benefits, and as Civil and Constitutional rights are repeatedly violated, so they can wield more power than what is prescribed of their elected positions; this is a great way to let them know that we have put up with more than enough of their shenanigans.

Don't think your right. President Obama cannot give them a raise. Congress alone acts on this. Check it out before placing blame.

Why should a professional windbag get paid forever? When citizen JohnQPublic loses his job, he doesn't get paid in perpetuity..... it's friggin' ludicrous. And the highest-ranking windbags get SecretService bodyguards forever? F that, people. F that!

I will be waiting to get to the bottom of the Benghazi murders and the eviction of the Indonesian usurper before I pull the rug out from under their enthusiasm.
