If all members of congress have term limits, and no pensions or health care, why wouldn't they spend their six to twelve years in office wielding the power and influence of their positions to provide themselves with a sweet little nest-egg when their terms of office are over? This proposition invites even more corruption and greater corporate influence than our current system. And do you think requiring congress-members to contribute to social security will fix anything? Yes, they ought to contribute, but money from a few hundred extra people won't make a difference. This proposal is fueled by spite. And Congress does deserve our spite, but why not spend your time and political energy on something more results oriented? None of these propositions will make government any better.
