Perhaps we take a different look at how we compensate our legislators (and maybe most of the top level bureaucrats)
Perhaps we do away with all of the term limit nonsense, and decrease the salaries of those who remain in government (YES including those who are high dollar appointees) by 10% each year to encourage them to return to the private sector.
Maybe THAT would be the direction pay should go in the future?
