I really like Countable member GrumpyMSgt's opinion:
"Yes with one caveat....the pension will be reduced based on lobbyist earnings. If their earnings exceed their pension then the amount paid by the TAXPAYERS is zero. In a tribute to liberal fairness, those years where nothing is received from the TAXPAYERS they would receive a nice lapel pin. Subsequent zero payment years could be rewarded by adding small dollar signs to the tribute to the TAXPAYERS lapel pin."
