Politicians have gotten out of touch

Success - Article sent! close

Before running for public office candidates should be forced to pass a test on economics and the meaning of the "work illegal" and what the word "promise" means. They give raises and bonuses to themselves without telling us until it's done. We get nothing. They want to give free scholarships to illegals and we had to pay for our children to go to college. We get our Medicare deductions raised and politicians get their medical fees free. They should have to pay like the rest of us.

They forget that it was because their parents worked hard and gave up luxuries to pay for their education. Think about it and wonder why people don't vote.
