Just another example of how ass-backwards our system is. The people who risked their lives for their country are very near the bottom of the totem pole, and the criminals are at the top. It's time for a revolution to put things back in proper order.

Concur with the theme, but figures provided for Congress and President are very inaccurate; didn't check figures for military or Social Security.

Congress & President pay and pension are quite generous compared with normal citizens, both in vesting requirements and annual payouts.

A Wiki search for 'pension of Congress' or 'pension of President' will get you accurate info.

Still too high and more than worthy of reformulation, but starting with actual facts always helps.
