Salary of retired US Presidents .$180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate....$174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid

Salary of Speaker of the House ....$223,500 FOR LIFE! This is really stupid

Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line

Average Salary of a teacher .. $40,065 ?

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN .. $38,000 ?

Think about this.

Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE. She has retired as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year.

PLUS she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader. That's $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to us ... the taxpayers.

She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out every year!

I think we found where the cuts should be made!

If you agree ..... pass it on, I just did.

Regarding Congressional pensions:






Start there.


To summarize, only because those links have a ton of information:  Congress pays into a pension plan.  They don't get their salaries for life nor do they get compounded retirement compensation for the roles they fulfilled.  It's based on years of service.




"As of October 1, 2006, 413 retired Members of Congress were receiving federal pensions based fully or in part on their congressional service. Of this number, 290 had retired under CSRS and were receiving an average annual pension of $60,972. A total of 123 Members had retired with service under both CSRS and FERS or with service under FERS only. Their average annual pension was $35,952 in 2006."

Sapere aude.


When you cannot measure, your knowledge is meager and unsatisfactory.

let's take the governors of NJ, they get paid currently $175,000 per year for life even if they only do one 4 year term, if the pay goes up for future governors all of them from the past also get that raise, while in office they also get a $90,000 slush fund for which they don't need to disclose how they use it or on what, also add free healthcare for life including the spouse, paid pension, etc. Now these elected people work for the local, state or federal goverenment and they should all be subjected to the same as other public workers, do your 25 or more years and earn it....I don't care what party they belong to, in my eyes they are all POS, if you think they are on our sides then I'm happy to inform you, your a fool.
