Current salaries, not to mention speaking fees, taxpayer travel, other business interests for these elected positions allow these people to easily afford both medical insurance and 401k/IRA Pension Plans that many American Taxpayers can only dream about. Military or other government employees must have 20 plus years of service for any type of pension plan. Military after retirement often have to supplement for medical/dental insurance out of pocket for themselves and family members.
This is a matter of fairness for the average American tax payer and would also provide considerable savings for these tax payers in the years to come.
