Right On! Sequestration...bring it on: The first authentic spending cut. I don't believe the "make a budget or lose your pay" deal has a snowball's chance of working. Think about it..how many influential politicians depend primarily on their SALARY? ...and it's really easy to blame your opposition.

Disagree on sequestration, but you're right on pay cuts. The only ones who depend on their salaries are the ones who are more likely honest and relatively incorruptible - and who have the least power to force any kind of vote. Take away the salary, and they cave to whoever has the most power. They have no choice; they gotta feed their kids too.
