All of them probably come from money, have lucrative businesses on the side, or both. I've never heard of a politician that lives in poverty even if not in office, so yeah.
In theory, they work for us. So why do they get to set their own salary and benefits? Why are we giving them life long pensions when they only serve a couple years? Why do they get pensions at all when the private sector is eliminating that benefit?
You're right. Why should they get to keep their cake( big salary) and eat it ( power) too.Let them eat just the cake
Sounds reasonable. ;}
I love the way you think
