Absolutely! They spent the money and should be the first to reduce their salaries before asking anyone else to do it. They do not do what the people who elected them want. They tell the people one thing to get elected and then do what they want.....They should not be getting their wages after retirement or the best healthcare in the US. I agree that their terms should be 2 years and out. Let's get back to they are elected by us to do what we want. Let's stop giving and pay the debt like all the people in the US do with their own budgets.

They should also have to get healthcare coverage like the rest of us, not a special plan just for congressional members. Congress originally was a volunteer unpaid position, we should go back to that.

It would not be so bad if we were not paying the salaries and all the benefits and vacations. Perhaps the perks should be cut.

The thing that makes me mad is that Congress votes a raise for themselves, now how does that work. That is something they voted for themselves just like other benefits that they vote in for themselves. It seems they can make other peoples money their decision but heaven forbid they cut their own. I think that they need to ask the public if they want a raise, they work for us don't they? They get enough perks above and beyond their pay. Big Business pays them big to vote a certain way and...

Big Business pays them big to vote a certain way and they cannot say they don't. I also agree with Geraldine and Dan below. If the President wants to take a vacation then pay for it. Dan, I also believe that there should be term limits, but they voted that in for themselves also. Lifetime health care also, it is easy to make others suffer because you are not under teh same plan, they voted that also and that should be against the law. One word "ACCOUNTABILITY" what is good for the Goose....America needs to wake up and voice their opinion before it is too late. I am a disabled veteran and love this country but I am sick of the Govt taking advantages of the American people. Quit helping other countries that hate us. Louisiana and the East Coast need the govts help NOW! Way to Go Deb Mays (below) I agree 100% limit terms, pay healthcare, no automatic retirement after just one term, what a bunch of crap>>>>>>.

I got a GREAT idea, Cut the salaries of ALL Polititans and give it to OUR TROOPS, Boarder Patrol, Fireman and Police.Navy Seals should be the highest paying Job on the Planet.

This is a great idea! Pellosi just lost her Air Force plane that cost $50.000 in fuel a trip to take her -to and from CA and her family drank more than $32,000 in booze in one year on this plane. How often and how many family members were flying. Now she lost her plane and says she is not going to run next term, GOOD! Now how do we recoup the booze money? They've all taken advantage of their positions at our expense. I say jail all perps and cancel their pensions!
