found an interesting website. now, usually the word "union" alone throws me for a loop, but the national taxpayers union is worth at least a gander. they're pushing the "no work-no pay" laws already in place for politicians who take full saleries, but skip out on their duties. from their study:

From January 2003 to the October 2004 recess, John Kerry missed 146 days of votes without being granted leave. Total salary overpayment: $90,932.68.


I have heard that it is possible for Massachusetts state senators & representatives to pay virtually no taxes. If they live a certain distance from the capital they can deduct the travel expense from their income tax.
