Place All Politicians On Social Security
Take away the "golden parachutes" of Politicians and place them into Social Security to sink or swim with the rest of us.
Currently, all Politicians have their own version of a retirement "golden parachute". With your constituents suffering with the economy the way it is; this is no more acceptable than Bank CEOs receiving "golden parachute" bonuses, while their businesses tank.
While I realize this is a tough step to take, since you personally benefit from the current retirement plan, I think that it would do wonders for your electability in the future.
I can't think of anyone that wouldn't vote for a politician that actually SHOWS their constituency that they understand their financial pain and is willing to share that pain until Social Security is fixed.
In fact, I expect your constituents would consider you a HERO for backing such a measure!
Thanks so much for your time and attention.
