Makes sense. Put them in Government housing and give them an EBT card too.
Five minutes into their four year term and they'd be auctioning off their votes on the Senate floor.
Anger is one thing and it can be healthy. When it goes too far it leads to ridiculous ideas that only leads to more trouble.
You pay them minimum wage and you get minimum wage effort. However these are the people that control the country. Give them minimum wage and you will
attract deadbeats that have no concept of the jobs responsibilities and will sell themselves just as readily as the current batch if not more so.
be done is curb the outside money from playing a part in politics. It's not a matter of the taxpayer giving them subsistence wages to
prove a point. It is a matter of Halliburton giving 60 of them 20 million each to take us to war again, or GE giving 60 of them 10 million each to
reduce emission laws, or the Koch brothers buying 60 of them for what ever plans they hatch, or Bloomberg putting enough in his pocket to remove the
guns from the common citizen, the possibilities are endless...
I understand the anger and I share it. I want the same things as you do I am sure. I just think we want to go about it in different ways.
I want to leash/harness the Ticks while still providing enough incentive to attract competent legislators. The days of Teddy Roosevelt and JFK are
over. Selfless service to the nation simply doesn't exist in America any longer.
Provide a decent wage and stop the outside influence and there may still be a chance (however slim) to save the nation, do not do these things and we
continue to decline and eventually fail.
