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.
finally got my signature to post. yeah!
I kinda figure if your not part of the solution.... Your part of the problem.... Just saying....
I learned some things about this today... http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/congresspay.htm
Read some of it and always looking for more. I guess they can spy and we can find info also on them . Thanks
It is time to do away with the career politicians.
Article 5 of the constitution allows the people to do this but it will take people to participate to get it done
YES I HEAR WHAT YR SAYING, THE WAGES WE GET 2 TODAY DOn't COVER THE THINGS THAT NEED 2 GET PAID, PEOPLE ARE LOSEING THERE HOMES, CARS FARMING,,, MUCHLESS BAIRLEY GETTING FOOD ON THE TABLE, OR WHAT 2 FEED OUR KIDS, SOON WOULDn't BE ABLE 2 HAVE A DOC. 2 SEE US CUZ OF NO HEALTH INSURANCE, SOON WE WILL BE TURN AWAY, LIFE OR DEATH, IT DOn't MATTER 2 THEM, ALL THEY WANT IS MORE MONEY AND WE GET WHAT LESS PAY....LOOK AT THE GAS TODAY, 2 MUCH A HIGH PRICE..SOON WE WILL GO BACK 2 RIDEING OUR HORSE OR BIKES...IF WE HAVE ONE.
They get way to much let's see how they would act if they had to pay cash for all their medical needs like I do
Limit it? They should cut it all together. Rent and board only. Nice dinners only to entertain people needed to do business. And get rid of all their benefits and healthcare. No more pension. Period.
TO The World___Fuck all Democrats! You know not what you do.....
They are part time workers who take advantage of the american people. Let the public vote on their salary and benefits. Set a rate for their pensions with no cost of living. Let them see how we feel.
I would rather tie their pay to their approval rating. As soon as they go below 65% they start loosing pay and benefits. A 0% rating would qualify them for 0 pay and benefits. If they want an increase they would need to act in a manor that pleases their constituents and elevates the rating to 66% and above. I think current pay, based on this system would be below minimum wage.
Yeah, I like that very much. Let them feel the pinch as well. Here another one I thought about. When those elected officials don't live up to their promise campaigns then they should be asked to resign.
