No travel pay. It is either public service or a money making enterprise. Nobody forces these ego maniacs to seek elective office. None of them couldn't be replaced.

No travel pay!!

I totally agree? How many of us get paid to travel to work, or for our lunches while at work?! These people all have big bucks anyway. Kudos to those who did NOT seek re-imbursement!!

Don't forget the free gas tax money for pocket change. Notice the gas tax went up,in Taxachusetts the poor politicians had to take a cut in their pay raise. But they found other renews :)

These people are our legislators and earn their perks. They are responsible for writing important laws like No one can drive a car with a gorilla in the back seat, also it's illegal to snore in your bedroom unless all windows are closed and secured. Don't beleive do a search on dumb Mass laws. Then maybe you will appreciate the hard work they do.

NH pays very little. In that state serving is still about service.

In NH they only meet two weeks a year and there are no constituent services. They can keep a real job too since they are free the other 50 weeks of the year. That is nothing like what we have here.

She is there every week. Besides she spends a lot of time doing work in her office in
Boston and here in Leominster, including weekends and after hours. Like I said, she's doing her job, and if you don't like it, RUN FOR OFFICE.

Fizbo. What kind of name is that? Sounds like a comic book character or somebody from the "Lord of the Rings" movies. Must be related to Bilbo Baggins...ha ha ha
