Washington never changes…but here is a way to change that and it makes sense.
The career politicians make budget cuts, huge mistakes, ear-mark personal pet projects and they lose nothing… but as American tax payers, we lose and we pay… and we pay dearly.

Consider this!
Why should Washington Politicians continue to be paid their lucrative salary (regardless of their respective performances) even after they leave office and in most cases until they die?

No other working Taxpayer gets that kind of gold-gilded deal. Washington politicians also have a one and only health care plan just for them that they don’t pay into. To add insult to injury, they vote in their own pay raises, additions or changes to their health plan, and ride off into the sunset… set for life.

How? “Because they are the lawmakers and they make the laws perform in their favor and we as a people need to put an end to that kind of highway robbery!”

Why don’t they have to live and survive like the rest of Americans? With the exception of maybe the President and Vice President, they can live or die (on a level playing field) in our Capitalistic society just as we live in that they so like to manipulate, like a bunch of moronic royals sipping rare wine and enjoying the good life. This is a travesty that has been swept under the carpet for years.

Have you ever wondered why all this money is spent to get elected? It’s for them and their lobbyist cronies who receive rich rewards from getting their pet projects and deeds carried out. The Nite Ranter says “enough is enough!”

As Americans we should put an abrupt end to this give-away program for Washington Politicians and now, with the enormous negative deficit that we face, it is the perfect time.

My Question!
Do you support the Washington Politician giveaway program coming to a screeching and very sudden halt?

    Ranter, You don’t turn me on–thank God. However , you have been on the right path (not the political right) for the past several months. I think the politicians we sent to Washington are a bunch of crooks. I think they should all be recalled. I read the other day that in the State of Wisconsin there is a big recall of the Republican Tea Party Senators that backed the end of barganing for public employees.

    What the HELL is happening to our nation It seems that the current political theme is fuck the poor and middle class and give everything we have to the rich. Soon we are going to become a banana republic.

    Ranter, you turn me on with your writing skills and the topics that you hit like a touchdown in the last 2 seconds of the Super Bowl. Trust me, this is NOT a “sexual innuendo” but only my way of saying Thank You for giving the Web-Ways a really up town blog to follow!

    If you stop, I’ll hunt you down!
    Just kidding.
    I remain, humbly yours.
