I believe that the common people of America want to know why our congressmen have such large salaries, huge benefits and can vote themselves raises, yet cut programs for the elderly and needy in this country.
Here is my solution: The elected officials should live on Social Security and have Medicare for themselves and their families' health needs. Then, take the money saved from their inflated salaries and give it back to Social Security. After all, it was stolen from that program years ago, with no payback.
They cater to the rich, take away from the poor and middle class, send U.S. jobs overseas, assist other countries, but turn their backs on the people here who are in need.
This country was founded on high morals and a firm belief in God. Congressmen have dumped God aside for the whims of a few. Their rights include to worship or pray as they wish. They do not have a right to change this country's values to their own.
Bring back prayer and God to this country.
As for integrity and morals, congressmen lost those a long time ago.
It is my opinion that they are self-serving, dishonest and morally corrupt.
