I think whatever they are considering doing to We the People through defunding of our public programs, healthcare, and education, veterans services, etc. should AUTOMATICALLY equate with their loss of the same benefits. We pay taxes and their jobs are to listen to US: take our calls; answer their DC and State offices' phones; set appointments for those who request them, and listen. They are there because of our VOTES which put them there, NOT the lobbyists that wine and dine them. We need money to run the country, not line their pockets nor those of big money interests. That's the job! PUBLIC service, not personal ambition.
