> 
> When they retire, they continue to draw their same pay, until they die,
> except that it may be increased from time to time, by cost of living

> For instance, former Senator Bradley, and his wife, may be expected to
> draw $7,900,000, with Mrs. Bradley drawing $275,000 during the last year
> of her life.
> 
> This is calculated on an average life span for each.

> This would be well and good, except that they paid nothing in on any
> kind of retirement, and neither does any other Senator or Congressman.
> 
> This fine retirement comes right out of the General Fund: our tax money.
> 
> While we who pay for it all, draw an average of $1000/month from Social
> Security.

> Imagine for a moment that you could structure a retirement plan so
> desirable that people would have extra deducted so that they could
> increase their own personal retirement income.
> 
> A retirement plan that works so well, that Railroad employees, Postal
> Workers, and others who aren't in it, would clamor to get in. 
> That is how good Social Security could be, 
> if only one small change were made.
> 
> That change is to jerk the Golden Fleece retirement
> out from under the Senators and Congressmen, and put them in Social
> Security with the rest of us.  Then watch how fast they fix it.

> If enough people receive this, maybe one or some of them along the way,
