If he doesn't like the job, he should quit

But despite all the hard work, long hours, low pay and abuse he gets from people outside the job, Rep. Steve Southerland (R-FL) is going to run for a second term.
Rep. Steve Southerland (R-FL) is not impressed with his $174,000 per year Congressional salary. Or the benefits package that comes with serving his constituents in the House.

"And by the way, did I mention? They're shooting at us. There is law-enforcement security in this room right now, and why is that?" he told a town hall in his Second Florida Congressional District Wednesday. "If you think this job pays too much, with those kinds of risks and cutting me off from my family business, I'll just tell you: This job don't mean that much to me. I had a good life in Panama City."...

According to the Florida Capital News, Southerland seemed frustrated by constituents who think he's landed a cushy job as a member of Congress, what with his subsidized travel, cheap health care and salary more than three times the median family income in his Tallahassee-area district.
Another disgruntled Teabagger running from reality. He well deserves the words of Oliver Cromwell
You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately ... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!
