Politicians: Abuse Your Power - Lose Your Pension
-- Republican Rep. Lee Terry is seeking co-sponsors for his Public Trust and Accountability Act (HR 4548), denying retirement benefits to any federal employee, including judges and elected officials, convicted of abuse of power in their position.
Please contact your congressman to help get this measure passed. Why should we, the People, pay these louts' benefits in-perpetuity if they have been convicted of abusing their position?
The pensions these people get are a sweet deal, but it should be EARNED, not assumed.
