CONGRESS: Members should sacrifice, too

Being that the U.S. Congress feels that the sequester is so good for the person on the street, I think Patty Murray should have gone a step further in her Viewpoint (TNT, 7-19).

She should have said for each member of Congress to support it a bit more, they would have one employee/aide take one day a week off without pay. Then to support it more, the member of Congress would take an immediate 20 percent salary cut each month through the end of September like the other folks are being made to do.
