I believe Executive, Legislative, and Judicial pay should be cut by 10%! I understand Congress and the Senate may be making the decisions that run our country, but their pay is wasteful - just like the bonuses that are paid to the bank CEO's and oil tycoons. Taking money from lower income government employees by not granting annual raises and forcing minimum wage is borderline theft! Our country is suffering financially and legislation is constantly seeking ways to fund everything from the health care bill to unemployement benefits, yet they have no problem keeping their excessive salaries. I suggest their pay be cut 10%. Perhaps a good show of faith by our government and their willingness to accept a paycut would make more people rally behind them as they look to rebuild our economy.
