Time for a change

To the Editor:
If you are unhappy with the direction of our country, whether it is local, regional or national, please consider replacing all the current Congress and Senate when they run for reelection. Their terms should be limited to two years  anyway. They should have the same insurance as the citizens have and should not receive a pension after only five years of service. Changes such as these will go a long way in helping our budgetary problems. They are public servants (emphasis on servants) and should not become wealthy (average salary is approximatey $160,000 per year) due to this service. When I think of what a policeman or fireman makes in comparison and that they put their lives on the line, it makes me furious.
