Good And Now Make Them Pay

Federal lawmakers are no different than you and I and they shouldn't have perks that anybody else cannot get.
This is a start.  From Fox News:  One of the most popular perks for Washington D.C.'s power players is coming to an end, Fox News has learned.
After June 30, members of Congress, Supreme Court justices and certain diplomats will no longer be able to park in the special lot set aside for them at Reagan National Airport, just across the Potomac River from the Capitol. 
The coming change has left some lawmakers and their schedulers apoplectic. The special lot has long enabled lawmakers to shave minutes off their trip to Capitol Hill for a crucial roll call vote — or to get a head start on their flights home for every congressional recess....
Once the lot closes, cars with government credentials will have to park in the airport's public garages, just like everyone else. However, lawmakers, justices and diplomats will not have to pay for parking — provided they remember to show their government ID to the garage's cashier.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/25/no-parking-reagan-national-airport-perk-for-lawmakers-ending-june-30.html
These lawmakers make almost $200,000 a year plus all the per diems, kickbacks, bribes and stealing all the campaign cash they can hide.  They can pay for their parking...and join Obamacare.
