Letter: No shutdown if all fed wages held

October 2, 2013 

I bet if federal salaries (president, Senate, House and staff) were tied to the sequester it would not have happened nor would the “government shutdown.” Most of what we pay taxes for is gone except those salaries and benefits which are off the charts!
