Maybe They Should Cut Social Security Benefits

Aside from that joke, I’m not sure what else I have to add to Chris Cillizza’s coverage of the way Republican retirements are contributing to a very bleak GOP outlook for the midterms. On a similar, but slightly more serious note, maybe this is a reason Republicans should consider supporting tough ethics reform legislation. You’d probably see less eagerness to get out of congress if it were harder to shift into lucrative lobbying jobs.
