Thousands of hardworking Americans and military personnel will have their wages cut by 20 percent because of the inability of the politicians in Congress to do the job for which they are paid.

Senators and congressman continue to live off the taxes paid by these same Americans who have lost their wages through their inaction.

They should voluntarily surrender 20 percent of their yearly salary in comradeship with their fellow Americans.

A 20 percent cut in their overly generous salary will probably go unnoticed by these political leeches.
