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.

Before you cut Military and Retired military pay take a pay cut yourself. You ask everyone else to make sacrifices so put be a leader and do the same thing.
People elected to public office do not represent me; they do not "lobby" for me as they should, but listen to all the lobbyists. Who do they help? Only want my money!
As a Active duty military spouse I see first hand how these budget cuts impact military families. Stop the bleeding already.....
Our military personal and technology need the money more then goverment? Please protect our country and our men an women in arms
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.
