Why can't Americans decide what politicians get paid?
Our politicians are all paid too much. They get rich, even if they only serve one term. They seem to be in the 1% of the rich, while the rest of us are not. If they represent us, why don't they have the same retirement we do? Like Medicare? Why don't they have to be in ObamaCare? Right now, they only seem to be representing, the rich or themselves. That, to me, is not a good thing. This is not just about Republicans, or Democrats, but all politicians. All of them.
Since we elect them, we are the ones who hire them. Why can't we be the ones who decide what they get paid? This will never become into law, because they are the ones who make the laws, not us.
The way to do this, is not to put up tents on Wall Street, or protest in the streets. How can we make something like this become real?
The way to make politicians listen to us is by voting. Remember we hired them and we can fire them. The vote has the power. We have the power. A vote is more powerful then a super-pac. We are not stupid. Just get out and vote
This hub is so short, it could be longer, but it is not. A politician's salary is not the only points. I am thinking about. They seem to be selfish, just selfish. Every single one. But, we can make them work for us. That is what they are supposed to be doing.
Every single vote is counted, every single one. Every vote counts, please vote, A vote has power, We are the ones with the power. Voting is easy, Do not let anyone take the right to vote away.
