Thoughts on the shutdown
A few thoughts come to mind concerning the recent government shutdown:
1. Are the senators’ and congressmen’s pay and benefits suspended also?
2. Maybe the best way to resolve all the recent issues: Over the next couple of election cycles, anyone who is an incumbent is voted out of office. What a message that would send.
3. Consider term limits. I think our elected officials would then really work for what is best for the country as a whole, rather than what works to get them re-elected.
4. How does the Affordable Care Act affect their medical benefits? I would bet that they are exempt, and would still get the best of the best.
