The Passing of Peter Jennings
I don’t mind these political public servants being paid a wage that is commensurate with their living needs for home and family. But I do object to their pension plan. And they have health plans given them that are better than most Americans. I believe that if every senator and congressman, etc., was given the benefits and the retirement plan of the AVERAGE American, and forced to do the kind of planning we all have to deal with in anticipation of social security and medicare, etc. being part of the picture, then the issues involved in public health and social security and even consideration of minimum wage would be dealt with more realistically.
