    No Kidding!!!

    Since most of the Senator's have Millions of dollars in assets, they should get paid Nothing!!

    Because they passed laws where it is legal for them to do "insider" trading on Wall St. SOME have increased their assets hundreds of percent's while in office!!

    One democratic senator is on record of over 700% since being in office.

    Throw the bums out and freeze their assets at the same time!!

    This stuff gets talked about ad nauseum on here and other sites and nothing changes. People talk and talk and the reelect the same butt heads over and over. Quick talking and start voting. Same old story, everyone's representative is bad except mine. Other countries change their whole regime thru facebook and dancing with the stars makes the front page here. We used Facebook to elect the biggest liar of all time. Half the people who write and complain about this crap are not registered to vote and belong no gun organizations. Damn, this is an annoying site to try and type on.

    I am curious as to this comment.

    Who, when, where?



    That aside, I agree, they all should take a 50% cut in wages right now.Plus we have to vote them out of office.

    Bad information... Congressmen and Senators do NOT receive full pension if they serve one term or even 3 terms, etc..

    The deal about congress not paying social security and then collecting... FALSE.

    Congress won't take voters seriously when they know the voters don't even know what they are crying about!
