Why is it that if I get put in jail I don't continue to get paid YET a senator or congressman does!!! Talk about waste, fraud and abuse--this is MAJOR. They also should not get a pension for doing one term, that continues for years and years after they leave office. They also should not be able to vote in raises for themselves---the US people should be able to do that. They act like they rule the world and are more important than anyone else. I myself think they need to come back to the REAL WORLD.
