Reader Input: Ask reps to take a pay cut

-A +A


According to the news,President Obama and Chuck Hagel, defense department chief, have voluntarily taken a 5 percent cut in pay to show solidarity with the federal employees that have been affected financially by the sequester. I’m sure some people will see it as a publicity stunt. I really don’t care if it is or isn’t. We should demand that our lazy and dishonest representatives follow suit. Estimates I have seen indicate a savings of almost $5 million if they were to do so. Our government is full of people who believe they are above the law and seperate from everyday citizens.Please help me get the ball rolling by calling your elected representatives and senators today! Lets make them stop laughing at us behind our backs, call today, let’s make them squirm.
