maybe we mainers should look into this! could this be a problem? does this influence the elected official so much that it clouds his ability to serve the people that elected him?
congress was never supposed to be a career. Its time to ban pensions for federally elected officials (congress and the president). let them serve their terms and then get a real job
http://wh.gov/NWLS since all of us are being asked to work longer,pay more for our medicare and wait till
we are over 65 to draw ours shouldn't theirs be looked into?
I think the least we should do is increase the amount of time served before they are eligible.
I paid into social security for 50 years; I started working part time at age 12-I retired from my last job at 72. M y wife is still working she is 67! we both were graced with good health. I have seen people in their 50's that should have been on social security because of their health!(but couldn't get it-the druggies don't seem to have that problem in their 20's).
I think we really should see and review their retirement package-its obvious it is to generous and should be adjusted!(by us)
