in order for all politicians to live like people do on ODSp
you must not own a car,
never go on vacation
ride the transit bus
pay your own cab fares to and from work to the doctor
eat weekly at the soup kitchen
shop only for used clothing, shoes and used furniture

you are not allowed to buy anything new because you cannot afford it.

lunching out? once a month.

Let’s put them all on this plan for ONE full month and then see how they feel by taking a vote if they’d like to continue!

you can have full dental and medical benefits within reason (like the rest of the people)
