Instead of always threatening to not pay our military and our elderly's ssi I think its time to NOT pay the congressmen and senators and all the hundreds of white house staff, the president included! If they cant do the job they are being paid to do then they should not be paid at all. We as tax payers pay for a full time senate, congress and President...they only work 1/3 of the year when they should work just like the rest of us working class people. All those people become millionares...

All those people become millionares within the first year of office...how obsc.

I think that any time there are cuts like the sequester, we should start with congressional paychecks.

I signed the petition but I want to include the President in the mix. No more use Air Force One for vacations for his family while so many are are furloughed. It was his idea afterall and trying to push the blame on to others is ridiculous!

Aren't they supposed to work "for the people"? Try working for Minimum Wage, live on a 1.7% pay raise or no pay raise, and see if they are eating Beluga Caviar and drinking Crystal then.

I feel like much of the hold up has more to do with this president NOT doing his job- he needs to stop the deceitful manipulations, the campaigning, the attempts to brainwash the nation.... stop acting like a big baby with this apparent smear campaign against anyone who disagrees with him and realize that he's not getting a larger surplus. I'm more on Boehner's side of this than anyone else's- Obama's NOT doing the job of the office. I want him fired.

NO WORK, NO PAY SEEMS FAIR. BUT WHAT IS FAIR ANYMORE IN AMERICA. OUR AMERICAN CONGRESS PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE TO PLAY BY THE SAME RULES, BUT WILL THEY EVER!

These bozos wouldn't last 30 days in the real working world. They only work 100 days, get absolutely nothing done and they can't be fired.
