I think they should work for minimum wage for the rest of their term-see how they like it and forget retirement benefits!

every elected official should automatically have to take a cut in pay and benefits until there is no longer a deficit. We do and they work FOR us!!!

All I would like to know is once they are out of there Gov't office when there term is up, WHY ARE WE STILL PAYING THEM A SALARY? And paying for there INS. They don't pay me for what I did in the service or pay for my Ins.. Since I have been out. And they want to know where all the money is.

First off, these people work for us, not us for them. Second, they are part time employees of ours. Where have you ever heard of a part time employee getting any type of benefits? Stop all benefits and retirement for elected officials in DC. Third, we don't need a balanced budget. We need the budget cut, reduced right now. They want to raise taxes so they can spend more.Instead of a tax increase, taxes should be cut in half. All unconstitutional and illegal agencies such as the ATF,...

All unconstitutional and illegal agencies such as the ATF, DEA, TSA and all other unconstitutional and illegal departments should be shut down and done away with immediately. All foreign aid needs to be stopped now. We have people in our own country that need help and aren't getting it so why should foreign governments be getting OUR tax money. There are may others that could be brought up but I think this is enough to get started with.

Our Average Enlisted Military members who sacrifice their lives should receive the Wages & Benefits that our Congressional members do and, our Congressional members should receive the minimal Wages & Benefits that our Average Military personnel receive now...
