Why do we have corrupt politicians?

no stupid answers

Obama , Biden, Pelosi and Reid are the worst. There are some Republicans too. But the Dems have them beat by a long shot! Because they want to rule this country and diminish Americans. They defend illegals, but condemn US citizens. Its nuts!

Not crazy. In the world of Liberal guilt, every minority deserves to be elevated over the majority.

Because those politicians are only interested in money and they do not care about the average person at all they just want make money and get paid.

I think they're just more concerned about arguing with each other than trying to fix things.

Because a lot of them just want money, even if they have to do something detrimental to the country to earn it.

Good question! I think they all go in with good intention but the system is so F'd up they get lost in it. Everyone has their own agenda. The question really is why can't they all work together for the greater good of the people? Who really cares about what party you belong to . Get over it and work together. To many cooks spoil the broth!

Look at how they live once elected. Congress has a tax payer subsidized restaurant, a tax payer subsidized hair salon, we pay for their postage, we allow them "congressional privilege" so they can break laws. We pay for their 14-34 staff members. They fly all over the world on "fact finding" missions and we pay for that. The longer they are in office, the worse it gets. People suck up to them to get funding for stuff so they start to feel like they are above us. Triple that for a vp or prez. They only have to serve 5 years to get retirement pay.
There is a reason politicians sink millions into trying to get elected to jobs that pay $174,000.00 or for prez $400,000.00.
We want honest politicians again? Start with overturning citizens united. Take away the percs, ban pork barrel spending, remove the retirement benefits for all but prez. They are supposed to be public servants, not our lords.

Ain't that a fact? I used to be against term limits because I thought people would be smart enough to dump the crooks but I'm not so sure of that anymore.
You look at Stephens from Alaska or Byrd from wv and you have to wonder what people were thinking.
