We should cut the pay for Senators and Representatives. We should make their retirement to only be SS, not their salary for the rest of their lives. We also can do this to those who are currently retired because we have had no contract with them to pay their salaries. They also should be on Medicare and purchase their own supplemental health insurance policies. This would help our budget and our deficit. When we let them vote on their own pay hikes we lost any order of policy. They become very rich while they are in our service. This is not what these positions are for. I also think we need to make the House of a Reps a four year term because now they work 1 year and politic the next year. So we are paying for them to politic. Not right.
