Need To Fix The System…
Date posted - December 7, 2012
At what point in time did being a Public Servant that was elected by the voting public, become self employed, establishing their own wages, insurance, retirement, vacation, and right out show disregard to their “bosses”(taxpayers)? If my boss tells me to do something, I have 2 choices; 1) do it, or 2) find a new job.
I think the American Public has not spoken loud enough for our Congress and Senate to hear us. Based on their performance, they do not deserve a raise. They should not have their own retirement plan. They should pay into Social Security and get in line for benefits. Insurance? Why do I have to pay for their insurance and retirement? They should either pay for their own or get in line for Medicare.
With all of the jobs leaving this country, due to tax loopholes put in place, it isn’t rocket science to figure out that if people here aren’t working, they aren’t paying taxes. And, if people who are working here “illegally” keep sending money out of the country, that money will never return. Has anyone ever heard of the “9 Stages of a Civilization”? Google it. The writing is on the wall.
We are between 7 and 8 right now.
