Re: Departing MPs collect rich pensions, News, May 6, 2011.
If any of us who are in small business are left without work, we will have no income coming in. This means that, at the same time, we will have no money to give away.
So, why are we supporting the idea to pay out pensions to expired government officials? The small business folk are keeping the economy going.
We’re the ones who really work, and nothing comes easy for us. When it comes to spending money, we are the ones who should really be concerned as to where our dollar will go.
Look at the departing federal politicians leaving behind those who supported them. Who comes up with the figures behind their severance pay and pensions? We are giving so much to those who are completely financially stable.
I don’t see any sense behind any of this. Most of these people did not contribute enough to the system to even be somewhat recognized, and have done little for you and me. I’m sure they will take our money anyway.
