    Why don't the politicians in all levels of Government, vote themselves a pay cut, instead of a cost of living pay raise! What about that? Who pays their health insurance? What about that? Everyone needs to sacrifice something to get the bugets balanced, EVERYONE! I realise we as Americans are taxed to much. That all goes toward Government spending, ALL GOVERNMENT! That is what our taxes pay for. LET"S START CUTTING ALL GOVERNMENT SPENDING! Let's start holding all politicians responsible, and get the deficits down, so that we can all get equal tax cuts in the future. We can't cut taxes until the deficits are gone! STOP BLAMING EVERYONE, AND EVERYTHING ELSE! We have to all sacrifice something now, or it will not happen. It may aready be to late.

    They won't do that because they set their own salaries. This is even a better gravy train than the public unions have it since they have to bribe their representatives to rip off the taxpayers. Politicians get to do it directly.

    They won't because they are above everyone else!

    They have forgotten we have a Republic!
