His first act as leader, he told his audience, would be to amend the Constitution to eliminate the lifetime salaries that presidents, congressmen and senators currently receive.

“The salary of retired U.S. presidents is $180,000 for life,” Savage told his listeners.

Salary of retired House and Senate members: $174,000 for life.

Salary of the speaker of the House: $223,000 for life.

The average salary of a teacher, on the other hand, is $40,000 a year.

The average salary of a deployed soldier: $38,000 a year.

I think we need some reforms, don't you?

We need to stop paying salaries for life to presidents, House and Senate members.

They all make fortunes after they leave office anyway.

I'd amend the Constitution to eliminate a salary for life for any member of Congress, and even the president.

Every president grifts out millions of dollars the second they're out of the Oval Office.

That makes no sense.

RYAN NICHOLS - Hardened Criminal?? Seriously??

If you're not already aware. This is what's going on in DC while dangerous criminals are allowed back out on the streets.  It's horrifying that this is happening to our citizens and veterans for protesting the hijacking of our election process. This is still happening! They are STILL being tortured and treated like full on terrorists. 

You may not be aware of the typical things they're forced to go through...…
