It's official! I'm designing and printing shirts " Justification of Wages Should Begin on Capitol Hill" if you or I don't produce at work they would get rid of us! Why have these politicians Not been replaced already? Because of voters ignorant to a lot of facts! Clean house and lets give the USA a fighting chance!!! They are supposed to be working for us!

It would be ideal, and fair, if Congress was paid commensurate with what they accomplished. First, their pay should be no more tha 125% of the national average of worker's pay, excluding executives, CEOs, professional sports and any other absurdly and obscene salary.

It would be ideal, and fair, if Congress was paid commensurate with what they accomplished. First, their pay should be no more tha 125% of the national average of worker's pay, excluding executives, CEOs, professional sports and any other absurdly and obscene salary. Then, if our gross national product increases, then they would get a raise equal to the cost of living. Their pay would be based upon beind present and active in debates, discussions and voting. If they were prent for 80% of the time and votes, their pay for that period would be 80% of their potential pay. Congress (and the president) should pay into Social Security and receive the same benefits that We, the People hope to receive when we retire. Congress and the President should be in the same Health Care programs thar We the People will be mandated to partipate in. Congress should not be wined, dined and giftrd by lobbyists. If We the Peole accepted those Perks from someone trying to by our loyalty while we were trying to do our jobs, at best we would be taxed on them, if not charged with accepting bribes. I could go on, but let's have government do the job they were elected to do--provide a solvent government where everyone benefits from the work the government does and provides security and a safe and sane atmosphere for ourselves and future generations of Americans.

I believe and I would like to help but the main problem is if we develop"Many people worry that they may be at risk of developing" the world elite will give us a world crisis to forget our problems!
Another Problem is the majority does not want to fight and the USA sends very quickly his war machinery.....
