    The Congressional retirement ticket was written a long time ago, and voted on repeatedly by those penny-pinching Republicans just as often, if not more so, than those tax and spend Dems. Their packages are indeed much better than government employees. (but not contractors!)

    With Harry’s … ummm… connections, he doesn’t really need retirement pay.

    Well, maybe. Their recent effort at face redecoration kinda suggests they are not thrilled with his current performance.

    How would congressional term limits affect this?In 2 ways:
    - How wouldit affect payouts under the curent scheme?
    - How would it affect likelihood of reform?

    So it’s who’s done more for democracy in our beloved Country versus who’s done more for our beloved Country’s entertaining gun Lobby?

    Democracy’s overvalued anyway. Sheldon Anderson says so.

    What’s the “retirement pay” issue? Is he he retiring too soon for a Senator, because he is “only” 75, ten years beyond his normal retirement age?

    He’s a Democrat so he must be vilified.
    Forget about the Republican CONgress-critters who enjoy the same benefits and pay when they retire. It’s ONLY bad if a Democrats gets to enjoy the same benefits and pay as the Republicans.
    Curiously the maximum pension amount was increased for any members of CONgress who retire after November 2014. But still, it is not only disingenuous but downright intellectually dishonest to single out only a Democrat when there are Republican examples too. Look at the 71-year old Indiana Republican Sen. Dan Coats. He served in Congress from 1981-1999 and again from 2011 to 2015. Sure, not as along as Reid but he will still get a pretty good retirement. ’But hey, he’s a Republican so we won’t mention him. We’ll only rant and rail against the Democrat, because we all know it’s only acceptable when a Republican benefits.’

    What will the SEIU do with all those leftover “special” voting machines? Ship them to Wisconsin to needy Democrats?

    Holbert is sore because people complained that Eric Cantor took a multi-million dollar job with Wall Street as a corrupt kickback for the billions of taxpayer money he steered their way over his short time in the senate. So Holbert is trying to make it look like a Democrat is ripping off the American Public because he’s given a pension after years of service. It’s idiotic, but it’s the best you can expect from a hack like Holbert.

    A Dirty Harry joke. Very timely. What, you couldn’t think of a joke that involved bustles or mustache cups?
