I Don't Get It

I know this is a little off message for what this blog is all about, but I feel the need to say it.

When I was in the work place (and I was for 50 years) I got paid for being on the job.  I didn't get paid for being somewhere else looking for another job.  So what I'd like to know is this:

Are the current Governors, Senators, and any others who are paid by the tax payers and  that are running president, still collecting their salaries?  I mean, how can you govern New Jersey or legislate for Vermont or Florida or Texas from Iowa or New Hampshire.  If they are not on the jobs they were elected to, why should they be paid?

Most employers would dock their pay, and some companies might even fire them if they were not doing their current job and were out looking for another job and still collecting their pay. 

How can we trust anyone who cheats their employer and has not the decency and ethics to suspend their salaries when they are not on the job?

I just don't get it.
