The story "Sequestration: Hill Air Force Base's civilians may face 22 unpaid days" (Tribune, Feb. 22) reported that thousands of Utahns would be forced to take many unpaid days off if Congress does not reach a budget agreement.
Sen. Orrin Hatch told Utah lawmakers that if it comes, he supports sequestration: "We've got to face the music now, or it will be much tougher later."
Apparently, "We've got to face the music" does not include Congress. I do not believe they would work for 22 days for free or donate their wages toward fixing the fiscal slope. Wouldn't it be nice to see Congress work for 22 days without pay, helping the working class?
