I don't see my name on the recent signatures, so I'm not sure if it went thru. I am all for this thou. It's about time they are treated like they actually do work for us and not that they are a part of the elite not having to work for a paycheck like the rest of us.

Term limits, less pay, less power , less pay raises, less benifits, same insurance as us, out of office cut pay 3/4, benifits cut 3/4, our ins or find their own, ( I forgot less days off, work 40 hrs a wk like the rest of us, hands off our social security that's called stealing, we earned that money with hard work, it's not an entitlement.

Right. They should be part of Social Security and Medicare not "elitist" plans that they have now.

The political job should not be a life career rather a limited amount of
Years serving in congrss or senate and then returning to their career.
