Even if every single one of them was drawing maximum pension, it would be 42 million dollars.  

It sounds great.

I'd love it if we could maybe do something that's actually substantial instead.  

This is just one of those things that looks great on the campaign.  



Good point.

I would be more impressed if they were to deal with the 1/3 or 110 million Americans that are on Welfare, Food Stamps, Gov Housing and Medicaid.

How about what these buffoons will do about the millions of illegals in our country? By the way, both parties are to blame.

What I would like to see is something similar to a non compete clause, where they can't make an immediate jump from public sector to lobbying or chairing boards where they get immense salaries for their connections.

When Congress passed Presidential Term Limits, Truman signed it. It did not apply to him, just future Presidents.  That would be one way to get Term Limits in for the Congress.

How about they get a job like so many others do to supplement their income?  Novel idea right?  Of course I don't see this happening either.
