at least when they're reelected they have to maintain some semblance of public service

That's a nice thought but when probably 30% of voters (No link, just a guess) vote a straight ticket or believe what the asshole who has been in the seat for 10 years says. You will never get a turnover. apple or otherwise...
Didn't say it was a perfect system, but it's the one we got. Most of the voting electorate is not that sophisticated or politically engaged.

There is a reason that it's mandatory in trading/investments and some other treasury groups where you MUST take 2 wks consecutively off. To make sure no one is keeping two books.
What happens is the longer someone is in, more often than not their homeys in however big the circle is, win all the time.
So CEO pay is a direct compensation of performance? The board and shareholders have some say and yet it's not acceptable to Congress?
Yet creating some other form to break some instituionalization is ok?
Help me out with that.
