I am also a taxpayer and I did not even whimper when I discovered my social security was reduced--NOT UNTIL I DISCOVERED THAT CONGRESS EXCLUDED ITSELF FROM THE PROVISSIONS OF THE LAW!!!!! That really yanked by chain!!! That is the day I registered as an Independent voter! That is also why I never fail to use email to prod a politician or two. Incidentally, meg1, get up a petition--there are alot of retirees out here.

I'm not a Federal retiree, but I always willing to help somebody pulling a politician's chain. I'll sign your petition.

If more people knew about this it would probably rival the "House Banking Scandal" of a few years ago where over a 100 Congressmen were caught passing "hot" checks.
