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.

I'm poor. Work 5 days a week. No vacation. No benefits. No retirement. No 401k. I get screwed on my taxes. I tried to get help with food stamps. I got 15 dollars a month. Its a slap in the face. You make me hate every democratic representative and candidate
As a Combat Wounded Veteran. I served my country, sacrificed time away from my wife and kids. To protect the constitution of the the United States. My family now helps to take care of me. I may never work again. Now that I'm home I'm constantly battling to get help, and plead with doctors to help me. But because of budget cuts and force reductions in the military. I am being forced to medically retire. My actual paperwork says "expedite claim". Which means I'll be pushed out faster, taking a automatic 50% pay reduction. If I as a wounded service member can make 5 times less, be wounded, and have to support my family. Why can't you as a politician? Thank you.
The greedy elite have ruled long enough,time to cut their pay and benefits to equal that of the serfs(US)!
It is on record that our congress from 2008 to present is the worst congress in our history not passing any legislaton to improve the well being of our country, but complain about those on fixed incomes making less than $ 10,000 a year and say we are making to much. Congress is unwarranted in making their salaries and should be decreased for the betterment of our country.
