One simple way to help get money out of politics is to cancel all retirement programs for all members of Congress.

In my opinion, serving in Congress was never intended to become a life long profession. Why should we provide retirement or any other benefits after service is rendered? Take the incentive out of career service so we can get some new blood in Congress constantly!

Provide a stipend for health insurance and let members of Congress buy their insurance on the open market like everyone else...and let's see how they like what they have produced! Don't provide ANY benefits after they leave offic

This is a simple change that will help us break up the gridlock that career politicians have produced.

Peace

Excellent idea, especially if it is applied to ALL workers in the public sector.
