Tell Congress To Take A Pay Cut!

As the economy continues to lean closer toward a depression and Americans are losing their jobs and homes we ask that our elected officials do their part to help spread the wealth.

We want all members of congress to take an immediate 25% pay cut and that a wage-freeze begin immediately. This wage-freeze should remain in effect until the economy has completely recovered.

We want our elected members of congress to begin paying into social security instead of their privately funded retirement program.

We want our elected members of congress to pay their own way to and from work and for their meals (like the rest of us) instead of using a government expense account. This should also include using your own vehicle versus a government car.

These are hard times in America and your jobs are secure at least until the next election. Ours are not. We are losing our homes and forced to pay into social security and being a public servant should not equate to being an elitist.

Work like we do for barely nothing and will never be able to retire..
I truly believe this statement: We want our elected members of congress to begin paying into social security instead of their privately funded retirement program.
Why are we paying Congress a salary when they are not doing any work; they certainly are not attending to any law making or ? Plus, they are never in Washington D.C to attend to business!
Public servant means to serve the public! This madness needs to come to an end!! The government will not survive forever by forcing all the hardship to fall on the backs of the most helpless people and even causing their deaths.
Full salary and benefits for life? Why not free meals, and cars ?
John Boehner - $223,500
Majority & Minority Leaders - $193,400
Senators & Congressman (529 of them) - $174,000
Believe it or not even the Chaplin makes $172,500 (think he needs to start doing some heavy praying) Talk about a waste of money.

Until the U.S. Congress actually starts doing their job and stops wasting our money trying to stop the healthcare bill and trying to sue the President, their pay should be cut.
They did not do the job they were hired to do so they should not get paid. Two weeks paid vacation is all they should get. Not the whole month and then again in October. We are not getting our money worth from them.
Well what about our congress sacrificing a little and taking a pay cut?
