Speaking of the Military, when I signed the dotted line back in 1979, I was told that if I made it to retirement (20 years) my & my wife's medical/dental needs would be taken care of for the rest of my life.I just looked it up. The military has a mandatory retirement age of the first of the month following your 62nd birthday.
Why don’t politicians have the same rule?
If that was the law, we wouldn’t have these senile old politicians like Joe Biden, Dianne Feinstein or Nancy Pelosi (just to name a few) trying to run this great country.
Yeh, that didn't happen!
Can't really complain about the cost of the insurance provided, except dental/vision is not included.
My point is, I have to pay for it. And these useless POS's in Washington get it for FREE' for life.
Retirement pay,,,, it was always a joke while in, you make it to 20, they'll pay you 1/2 of what you can't live on now!
Career politicians make one hell of a retirement.
