I agree that the amount of pay can be argumentative. I am not in a position to be judgemental.
But what I would like to start seeing is a crack down on failing government programs and enterprises like Fannie and Freddiw, planned parenthood, borrowing from the social security fund, and even Bengazi and fast and furious.
Point is that none of our public employees are held accountable, even when caught at a GSA party in Las Vegas. Oh, they are transferred, preached at and even investigated, but very few times are they actually fired, much less sent to jail. They used to have a simple justice for this, tar and feather them and run out of town on a rail.
