Salaries ~ What The Fuck??

Was it Jefferson that said when the politicians learn they can vote themselves all this money democracy was gone?

These are the rich for whom we should increase taxes

Salary of retired US Presidents .............$180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate .......................$174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid

Salary of Speaker of the House .............$223,500 FOR LIFE! This is really stupid

Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders ....... $193,400 FOR LIFE! Ditto last line

Average Salary of a teacher ............... $40,065

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN ....... $38,000

Think about this.  

Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE. She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year. PLUS she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader. That’s $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to US...the taxpayers?

She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out every year!

I think we found where the cuts should be made!

If you agree ..... pass it on, I just did.

I have a better idea.......NO retirement plan for any politicians.

Didn't I read somewhere that they were supposed to represent us, not get rich doing it?

My thought is these people are elected by the state to rep that state.Therefore they are a state employee.Thus subject to the state employees benefit pkg.this approach might end all the high level entitled crap they seem to make available exclusively for themselves.

My attitude anymore is all these people in D.C. are criminals and tyrants. I use to think my vote mattered but it doesn't.
