tom are you kidding me? You are condoning this person for double dipping? You failed to mention, as does Mr. Foley that his$112,000.00 disability is TAX-FREE? Now he wants to make another $93,000.00 per year while people are losing their jobs and homes? How much is enough. If you had done your research, you would find out that this disability is paid for by the tax-payers and does not come out of his pension that he has paid into. I hope the voters in Fitchburg remember this when it comes time for your re-election, I know I will.

There can be absolutely no postive and constructive change in this country until:
1. We throw all incumbents out of Congress and reset the Legislature. This can be accomplished by either a) voting them all out district by district, or b) forcing bills through Congress that will enact #2 below.
2. Enact term limits on all federally elected representatives and appointed federal judges. While this may not be a perfect solution, it offers some level of insurance that no single individual will be in Congress (or the courts) long enough to adversely impact this country in the long-term. With the current system as it is, we end up with lifetime politicians, rather than representatives of the people, most of whom spend decades in their positions.
3. Ethics violations are dealt with swiftly and severely. If you are arrested as a citizen for a criminal act from possession of marijuana or drunk driving to assault on another person, you’re crime is prosecuted in an open court, with all evidence being made publicly available. If you are guilty as charged, you pay the fines, go to prison, do the probation or serve whatever penalty the judge declares. The same should hold true for Congress. Since these are our law makers, they should, at the very least, be held to the same standards as the plebes that elect them.
