Here’s an TheObamaCrat.Com™ soapbox moment:
And yet, where is the same 20% cut for Congress and the president? Are they not federal employees? Aren’t these the people who keep telling us that everyone must share the burden?
The across-the-board cuts set to go into effect at the end of the week will hurt the economy and they should be stopped.
But if Congress insists on cutting anyone’s salary, they should cut their own paychecks first. We pay their salaries. That’s why I created petition on MoveOn.org’s petition site, SignOn.org, which says:
It’s up to us to demand that if members of Congress pass these unnecessary and harmful cuts—despite overwhelming public opposition—that they start with themselves.

To be perfectly clear on what should be done with Congressional & Senatorial abuse of power, no elected Congressional or Senatorial person should be legally allowed to vacation or break while governmental issues are unresolved. No vacation or breaks until you pass legislation that has been tabled, filibustered or not yet resolved that is on the official docket for the current session. PERIOD.
Interested in shrinking government and cutting wasteful spending? Start with the “don’t do jack shit” 113th Congress and Senate.
