We are already paying waaaaa too much for the avg government official. If we pay these bozos $1M/yr I am sure they will just vote to increase everyone else's salary even more.
Private industry has competition, government does not. THAT Mr. Sowell is the distinction. Normally, I agree with Sowell but I have to disagree on this one.
Who will decide WHO gets appointed to the $1M/yr job? The votes associated to a bunch of ppl making $40k off the gov dole? Really?
How about we limit WHO can vote to those who've paid taxes and/or who've served in the previous year. We need to take the vote away from those that are not pulling on the rope to get us out of the hole we're in.
