Putting Good and Honest Values Back Into the Government
 
Punching Through The Hole into the Politicians "Fort Knoxx"
 
There is one weakness that all Americans overlook when dealing with the corruption of government. That one weakness is the money that government invests and becomes rich off of while they still earn a paycheck that is based off of our tax dollars. Why should any government official earn a retirement paycheck that is drawn from tax money when they make $5,000,000 a year in investments that are kept hidden in off shore oil and Swiss Bank Accounts
 
George Bush Jr. is worth an estimated $35,000,000 and still earns $190,000 a year in retirement that over 20 years adds up to $3.8 million dollars. That $3.8 million dollars is TAX PAYER money going into the coffers of someone who is worth $35 million dollars. DO YOU see any sense for someone worth $35 million to receive $190,000 a year retirement? Money that could be going back into the economy. Back into America and not towards such a politicians luxuries. I'm not talking about Democrat or Republic, Conservative or Liberal. I am talking about ALL politicians who make over $50,000 a year from investments being paid ANY retirement. Retirement money that comes from the taxpayers pocket. Money that is being spent by the politician for their luxuries when everyone else has to pay for their luxuries.
 
If that isn't tyranny then I don't know what is.


The more that we bring about values back to the American government the more likely other nations will follow suit and replace their corrupt terrorist governments.


The real question is how much are politicians retiring on when they do not need such retirement.


I bet the overall cost to the taxpayers is well into the trillion dollar level.


They don't need it yet they still take it from the American taxpayer.


They just continue to take....

One has nothing to do with the other.  If someone is "poor" or "rich" doesn't change the fact that someone is eligible for a retirement package.


 


Now what I want to know is how someone only being a government employee becomes multimillionaire in just a few years (if they're not getting bribes like they say)...
