    Not only have a vast majority of the so-called legislators been bought and paid for,the congressional staff has as well. As of 2008 ,under Bush ,there were only around 203 staffers making 6 figures. Now,under obama,that number has swollen to over 2000. Money is the over-riding factor in helping them turn a blind eye to the trashing of the constitution.The increase of more than 10 fold is a deliberate tactic by the dems to keep their forces content,to clear the floor of any obstruction by some, that might have second thoughts on trampling the will of the people and ruling instead of governing.

    After reading Congress Waxman and his ploy to silence businesses,I think that along with term limits we should have age limits Congress should have to retire at age 70,and from age 65 should have a yearly mental evaluation, some of these cronies sound as if they have dementia

      Age limits… sounds good. In line with Term Limits.
      If mental evaluators are not related to Academia, Media or Hollywood Elitists, the results may be honest!
      You’re right, tho. Those cronies have dementia!
      mahalo and aloha1

    We could have better government by choosing congress by a lottery of taxpayers. Have you every seen a congressman that served more than one term not come out a millionaire? Bought and very well paid for.
