Iceman081 Posted September 15, 2011 Report Share Posted September 15, 2011 Every now and then I get so mad that it turns into a brillant idea and this morning it happened again! I read an article in the GR Press about a former state congressman that was charged with child molestation and still will receive his pension of almost $80,000 a year when he goes to prison! Now I got fumming mad, not just about the child molestation but about $80,000 a year in a pension for 15 years service and we are paying for it!!! Then the lightbulb turned on a "Voter Initiative with a part-time congress and no pensions and no benefits!!" I got to thinking that they take off almost 4 months a year and why should they get a pension when alot of the things they have done in the past has caused thousand's of people to lose their pensions and benefits here in this state. Just think of the huge savings to this state!!! I think this is the way we can get a handle on this out of control legislature we have in this state. Tell me what you think? We'd have to get a Lawyer or someone like that to draft it but it could be done and on the ballot by 2012. Lets all chime in here, I'd like to see what kind of support we can get!! WHY SHOULD YOU BE PAID FULL-TIME WHEN YOU ONLY WORK PART-TIME AND SURELY DON'T WORK FOR THE PEOPLE YOU REPRESENT!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
