Legislative perks

I am dismayed by the article “Lawmakers $3.9 million in per diems stirs critics” (Jan. 14).

No wonder we're in such a financial mess.

As an honest, taxpaying American, I'm criticizing that mess and I'm fed up with it. I am so tired of politicians thinking they are entitled to these perks.

They should feel privileged to work for us, not them feeling we owe them all of these perks.

Politicians pile it on the taxpayers and don't care as long as they get theirs.
