No pensions? Gee, I wonder whether that would bring better candidates. And once
you're in office, just how would you react to a lobbyist whose company
could pay a HUGE pension? And what if that company was a well-known polluter?
Who would you be working for then?
The whole two party system has decayed and is rotten. It is time for this
country to use a party system that will force the various factions to work
together to strengthen the constitution and stop the gridlock that currently
inhabits Washington. What the representatives and senators have forgotten is
that they are not there for a career but to work for us. There should be no
pensions for lawmakers.
