This is complicated. Not all the members of Congress are wealthy. This would encourage the wealthy, those that are willing to be bought by the wealthy, or those that will seek a wealthy haven to escape to when they leave office to run for office. Many members pay their own money to run their offices in Washington as well as their home districts. There needs to be a better more business like solution to the pension problem. Our representatives need better reporting about their activities to their constituents. We need a fairer way to run our elections. And our politicians need to move past running for the next election before the first half of their term is up.
