Shame you're not local, owe ya a beer for improving on what I wrote.Edit on #1 - Two terms maximum; same as the President. (there is zero reason why a member of Congress should become a multi-millionaire while in office).
9. No lifetime salaries; salary ends at the end of the term.
10. No pension plans; all members of Congress shall immediately be placed on Social Security.
11. No separate insurance plans (unless they pay for it out of pocket). All members of Congress shall immediately be placed on the Affordable Health Care Act.
What is good for the people is more than good enough for them. For far too long the ivory towers and pillars in which they reside are so out of touch with the average person, they have nothing in common and have completely forgotten about the reasons they entered office and who it is they serve.
Folks went down to DC for the inauguration (Trump) and prices for things in the mall were insane, as in nice clothes were a couple Grand when you go to the other mall outside dc and same item is what we'd normally pay for them.
Also remember seeing a documentary or special talking about how Lambo dealer's were complaining how they'd pay for them in cash as well.
I'll look for a link on it later, but as we said, they shouldn't be millionaires and the ruling class when all they are are public servants.
Hell, I want those who became millionaires to be forced to pay it back one way or other, made examples of so future politicians know their place (also why we can't have anymore lawyers who know how to write laws and exploit loopholes)
