Their salaries should be cut tremendously, they should pay for their own vacations including the President. They all should have to and of they are caught trying to cover up where they have used government funds to pay, they should be fired. No wonder our country is broke. The President had no right to make us pay over 100 million dollars for his vacation to Africa and claiming part of it as business. Just proves what a liar and crook he really is. Then gives Africa money we don't have. I...

Then gives Africa money we don't have. I believe in helping them, but we can't help ourselves. Two year terms are plenty long enough for anyone in any capacity. They can do some damage but not as much or as much corruption.

Cut their pay after they are out of congress and president. They should not be able to be lifetime congress so called servants. Two terms only you then must be out of office for twenty years

I think that any president that adamantly denies any knowledge of major world events (Benghazi, etc.) which is a bold faced lie yet has plenty of time to spend MILLIONS of OUR dollars vacationing, spending and golfing, needs a wake up call and lose his "lowered" salary after he's maxed out a two year term! None of this lifetime crap, ever. The same as I believe that all Congress, and the executive branch and the judicial branch should be required to be on the exact same Social Security plan...

No more lifetime perks ever!

The people spending millions of dollars is mostly GOP, congress. The president has done nothing different than all other presidents before him but actually he would have got a lot more done if it wasn't for congress blocking everything he is trying to do. Congress wants to take money from us to help out the rich while they claim they are trying to balance the budget.

Several years ago Legislators in Oregon had to work during the lunch hour. Rather than bring their own lunches it was selected to have their lunches catered. That bill alone would have provided the budget for the Early Childhood Development, Early Childhood Intervention program for Florence for three years. The Politicians state that they have NO money. Is the reality in truth that they have no Management skills? Just saying.

The president should be the first one cut and then cut all the rest

if they spend more money to get elected than the job pays they shouldn't get paid at all and no benefits at all.

Congress should never be allowed to set their own salaries - that should be the job of their constitutents. Limit terms to a maximum of two (2) total that can be served, period. Perks, social security like the rest of us. Hold them accountible for how they vote. Ban special interest groups and lobbying from the congressional buildings.

It's all a matter of benefits. Let them all be subject to the same treatment as regular citizens, taxes, social security, and medical insurance or system. See how fast they'll work-out something better for
everyone.
