    It is a legal way for them to use corruption to become wealthy.

    The Politician’s have become soo greedy that they have forgotten that they were elected to represent the people who elected them in the first place.

    Instead of helping the nation, there helping themselves to our money and working to get re-elected. They're not dumb, it's good gig if you can get it. Unfortunately the American people have gotten fed up with all the DC crap, and I know we ready for some real change!

    Instead of out representatives they think they are our overlords or our commissars.
    Proven by statements like: "you'll have to pass the bill before you get to see what is in it"..

    People become politician for ego,wealth and power. And the tiny percentage of those who do it to serve the public good are the one's you never hear of or hold much influence.

    The only ones they are serving is themselves and sometimes their states if there's enough of an incentive to do so!

    Jesus is the servant of all servants. Religion does not want us to know that. That is why they perverted scripture to divert our mind away from that calling the word servant slave. Devious of them isn't it? KJV has it right. A servant does not war against anyone. A servant will not call for sanctions on anyone, but the accusing condemning dividing ,persevering jailing devious abominable perverted defiled blaspheming devil will with hateful relish looking good with spit, and shine with a good speech to tickle thee ears of the hearers corrupting the hearts of many to think that what he says is very good.

    The only lives most of them want to improve is their own. There are so many financial and other perks, and opportunities that continue for their lifetime. Seeking the public good, upholding the Constitution of the U.S., and promoting America around the world? Nah.

    Great American statemen like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson & Patrick Henry thought of themselves as being public servants. Today's politicians view tax payers as being their mere subjects. That has been the case for over 40 years.

    They haven't been our public servants for many decades now, but rather our paid extortioners and embezzler, which we the people never seem to have the real guts to do anything about

    politicians do exempt themselves from the rules, regulations and laws they pass

    Term limits, end to perks, and subject to the laws rules and regulations they pass would be a great start.
