What a joke. One term as a Congressman gets you full pay for the rest of your life, pretty good retirement , huh. The 535 elected representatives appoint over 23,000 staff members we as voters have nothing to say about. Google (number of staff for congress) if you are among the nonbelievers. Their biggest challenge is staying in office. It's the intoxication of power that's so addictive and living outside the laws they pass for us. Why are they exempt from the health care law? They think it's their salary we contest and it's far, far from that.
