'Exuberant retirement' wrong

Kudos to the writer of "Why is Social Security any different?" for his comments on our elected representatives. Boy, did he hit the nail squarely on the head.

I cannot understand how these elected officials all feel that they are above the law and better than the American public, that I might add voted for them. These big shots make more in retirement than the average Joe earns working his entire life.

I do not see the reasoning behind the exuberant amount paid to these officials during their working years and especially given to them during their retirement.

Come on, America. We need to unite and find a way to put these people and their earnings in perspective. Is there anyone out there willing to step up and take the lead?
