I've added a thought (my initials) and will add and update it as time permits.
While many of us struggle and worry about tomorrow, our politicians sit pretty playing with the future of our country and our people...
Salary of the US President: $400,000.
Salary of retired US Presidents: $180,000.
Salary of House/Senate: $174, 000.
Salary of Speaker of the House: $223,500.
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders: $193,400
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN IRAQ: $38,000
MLC: Action-we need action to follow solid, realistic and sustainable ideas; not empty promises nor sullen discord. When the senate has too much power, it is no longer an effective part of government. As responsible citizens, the times require us to cut, cap, and become responsible (balance)...a government of and for the people should be required to do the same. And this leads me to analyze... is our government really a true representative of the people anymore?
