This is why we should not have a political system that promotes career politicians. There should be no lavish retirement as our elected representatives have set for themselves. Not at all what our founders envisioned. If they had envisioned career politicians we would have had a monarchy not a representative republic. You may be right longside, we need the "Great Reset" to get us back to a system based on sound money and Constitutional principles. Our current political system certainly doesn't have the balls to do it otherwise.
