Here’s an idea….until this sequestration mess is resolved, members of BOTH Houses of Congress should NOT be paid a salary that comes from the pockets of tax paying Americans, who are not being served by this do jack shit 113th Congressional body.
THAT is just common sense.
Rep. Diane Russell,
When I first ran for office, I was a college-educated, debt-laden cashier at Colucci’s, the neighborhood convenience store, in Portland, Maine. I still work there one night a week when I’m not in session or busy with my marketing career. I know what’s like to leave work late at night with aching feet, and to wonder how I’m going to make it until the next paycheck.
If I didn’t show up for work and do my job, I didn’t get paid.
In truth, I was pretty terrified to send out this petition. In less than two days, though, more than 200,000 people stood up with me. It’s not rocket science, but Congress still just doesn’t seem to get that it’s ludicrous to collect a paycheck ($174,000/year) while refusing to actually do their job.
It’s precisely why I was so excited to learn that Rep. Tammy Duckworth is taking a voluntary pay cut now that sequestration has taken effect.
Let’s thank her and call on the rest of Congress to follow her lead! Can you share the following with your friends?
Thank you for all you do – and for the encouragement you’ve given me. Together, we can fight the special interests and put our country back on track.
~ Maine State Rep. Diane Russell
Thank you Rep. Russell.
I think taking a pay cut for ALL members of BOTH Houses of Congress is the only way to handle this sequester fiasco. Why would Congress be concerned with a quick & timely resolution to this fake ass issue of sequestration if THEIR paychecks are being paid in full?
You want them back in Congress doing their jobs, dock their asses when work is not completed, ON TIME. Pay members of BOTH Houses of Congress based on a Per Diem scale. Congress does not resolve issues, and vote on legislation, and get governmental problems solved to keep America solvent, don’t pay ‘em a damn penny.
Rep. Duckworth should be commended for her approach during this sequestration mess, but I’d go one step further and suggest America cut off salaries altogether for members of both Houses of Congress.
It’s time “We The People”take our government back from the likes of corporation controlled asshole politicians.
Oh, and by the way…..who asked Lyin UnFitt Mitt Romney for his asshole opinion on sequestration?
Mitt Romney Slams Obama Over Sequestration on Fox NEWS
Published on Mar 1, 2013
Mitt Romney Slams Obama Over Sequestration In his first post-election interview that will air Sunday morning on Fox News, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said President Barack Obama has flopped in his handling of the sequestration debate.
Romney criticized Obama for being caught off guard by the sequestration deadline and for “berating” Republicans during the budget debate.
“Well, no one can think that’s been a success for the President. He didn’t think the sequester would happen. It is happening,” Romney said. “But to date, what we’ve seen is the President out campaigning to the American people, doing rallies around the country, flying around the country, and berating Republicans. And blaming and pointing. Now what does that do? That causes the Republicans to retrench and then put up a wall and fight back. It’s a very natural human emotion.”
The clip was teased by Fox News during a Friday morning segment with anchor Chris Wallace, who landed the exclusive interview.
Aren’t you thrilled this joke of an asshole is NOT President Of The United States?
Go crawl your dumbass under that care garage Mitt.

Call @SpeakerBoehner 202 225-0600 and express to him in your own manner, that he, nor any other member of Congress, should receive a salary paid to them by us Americans, while WE Americans are cut off during sequestration.
Make the call.
