How about our do-nothing Congress? Over the past four years they were working on how to prevent re-electing Pres. Obama. Most in the workforce at companies, if doing nothing, would be fired. It’s too bad this can’t be done with them.

They are now working on the election in 2016. They’re also working at furloughing federal workers, lowering Social Security that people have paid, as well as lowering Medicare.

They get free medical and other freebees. Senators also get retirement funds for only one term. Why don’t they lower their own wages and do away with one-term retirement? This would save a considerable expense.
