I don’t blame the people in the Senate for spending our money. The people in question should be the ones signing their cheques.
I don’t see any sense behind any of this. Most senators did not contribute enough to the system to even be somewhat recognized, and they’ve done little for you and me. Let them tell us why they think they deserve all the high wages, perks and bonuses.
It sounds like very few of the chosen senators (by who?) are truly dedicated to their jobs, and the rest are just greedy takers. We need to have much better control and knowledge of our spending.
