I was told that all Congressmen & Senators (once they've served 6 years), receive a salary for the rest of their lives. This seems absurd & obscene to me - a waste of money (especially when the receivers are already wealthy) - something I thought was reserved for presidents (and I think there should be a time limit set on them). I asked my husband why "We The People" can't get something on the ballot to change this & he said because "they make the rules".
Has it always been this way (where they receive lifetime salaries)? How can "We The People" put an end to this madness?
