We are getting scammed. http://news.yahoo.com/nearly-one-five-members-congress-gets-paid-twice-060314402.html One lawmaker, freshman Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, received $253,323 from her government pension last year—a sum that, combined with her congressional salary, will make her better paid than President Obama this year. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joyce_Beatty Check out this woman's pedigree...I'm sure she richly deserves this lucrative pension. No wonder Ohio has gone from Pub to Demo. Who was paying attention?
