Stop allowing ex-lawmakers on state payroll

Editorial in Towanda's Daily and Sunday Review on the revolving door from the legislature back into government -- either directly or as lobbyists.

What's lost in this discussion is the main argument of many of these same people -- that we must raise legislators' salaries otherwise we'll lose good talent to the private sector. Well, then, why are so many of these "retired" legislators coming back to the public trough if the wages and benefits in the private sector are so much better? Hmm...
