Budget cuts

Why are there discussion about cutting Social Security, VA benefits Arts funding and no discussion of cutting Senator and Congressmen’s pay? Captains of industry have taken pay cuts, why not the Government? They are Government employees just like Civil Service and the Military shouldn’t they be governed by the same rules? What happened to Lincoln’s, “Of the People, By the People, and for the People”? It seems now it is FROM the People. We really must impress on our “REPRESENTATIVES” that they are supposed to represent us, and if they can’t or won’t then we need to replace them with someone that will.
With apologies to Michael Jackson,
“It doesn’t matter if you’re Red or Blue, cut the budget so it doesn’t affect you!”
