  •  Since we now have a professional political (5+ / 0-)

    class it is long past time to change their entitlements so that they receive the same paltry pensions, SocSec, and medical that the rest of us do. By adding their contributions to these we both make the programs healthier and save taxpayer money at both the state and federal levels.

    The original generous programs were designed to assist those who were temporary public servants and may have sacrificed something to enter politics. We now have a professional political class which much like the Chinese mandarins amasses fantastic wealth and power from their political careers and votes themselves increasingly lucrative benefits. Make them live with the progrms they create.

    If... the machine of government... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. ~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849
