Post-Standard: NY measure would end political welfare for lawmakers

This is a great article about a great initiative in New York state. Here is what it comes down to: A measure that would mandate elected officials need to have a way of receiving benefits before, during and after public service, and not on the public dime. This is what American government is supposed to be about, not the gravy train that has become a way of life, and an embarrasment to this state.

This is a county level measure and something that at least one legislative candidate, Pat Walsh from District 13, has been talking about. If this is not the future, then it should be.

Click on the headline and go there. It's worth the reading.
