Sorry folks, dont get so happy about his retirement. He and his cohorts are going to pass the most horrific bills before retiring, and were promissed something. They know what they are doing, and know most Americans dont want what they are doing, so they have been given something to get them through the rest of their lives, we dont know yet what it is, but you can rest assure, they wouldnt do this knowing they would be done when it passes, if they werent promised SOMETHING!!!!!!
Oh you are so right. But remember this - they already get a kings ransom in retirement. HUGE retirement money - free medical at the best hospitals - they are not going to be subjected to the socialistic medicine they are putting all of America under - free dental - free eyeglasses and hearing aids - free postage - a stipend for an office - and they can earn as much money and still draw a huge retirement amount. If I remember correctly it will come out to approx $175K a year. That is all the things listed above. And I agree there is something else being added to all the freebies they are already getting and there is nothing we can do about it. The hell with the hard working Americans that are footing the stinking bills that these men have put on our backs - they don't give a hoot about that just so that these unmitigated fools get what they think they are entitled to. They don't work at all - there are aides that do all their work - all they do is show up and bow before the muslim king in the White House and vote to destroy America.
Rob Simmons is the leading GOP as of now, but Linda McMahon (wife of Vince McMahon of WWE) is running as well, or making an attempt to. She is one heck of a business woman and a firecracker. Don't know her stance on policies, but it would be interesting to see what she's got in office.
If she's anything in office like she was on the shows... she'd kick tail! Just hope she's not another RINO.
Halleluia....an answer to prayer. I just wish he could be stripped of all benefits he will be reaping the rest of his life. I guess I need to be thankful he will be gone. We need to be vigilant and make sure his replacement, regardless of party, will uphold the Constitution and remember that he/she works for us. It is not the other way around!!!
Just goes to show that the dems are only willing to fight for their beliefs so long as it doesn't negatively affect their personal wealth/position/status. Dodd knew he was going to get his clock cleaned so, rather than be voted out and left without a job, he manages a soft landing by retiring. He'll probably get some ambassadorship that will allow him to keep drawing a paycheck and save him the embarrassment of the Republican ##swhuppin' he was headed for. Coward.
