How about no pensions for pols?

I have an idea. Rather than pushing for term limits for elected offices (which seems to be no nearer today than ever), why not a law that no elected office in this country, at any level, shall have a pension paid for by taxpayers?


Would this help to make a career in just politics less likely?
