Who else is sick of those who whine that Representatives and Senators "could make more in the private sector?

Who else is sick of those who claim and whine that congresspersons "could make more in the private sector" as a way of excusing their constant raises and huge perpetual benefit packages? Well, then, go and try! Go make more money -- we do NOT want such whiners in office.

"It's serious and it's from morning till night. We've been dwelling, rightfully, on the economy," said Larson, D-Conn. * * * How magnificent of them /not.

This is really why we cant get real bright people to run for political office. It is true that if you are good at what you do, you will not be a politican. Politics are so corrupt, that even the best new breed cant change what is going on. Only term limits will do that/
