Letter: Let lawmakers feel our pain

If you were to look at the Sequestration document (AKA “fiscal cliff”) you would find an amazing fact. Our U.S. Senate and House of Representatives (page 2 of 224) EXEMPTED themselves from this looming budget crisis. 

I wonder … if their salaries and benefits were removed from them until they completed this task, do you think we might arrive at some sort of consensus in a fair, timely fashion? Perhaps if they shared the pain with the rest of the U.S. citizens. …I wonder?
