Salary decrease for Congressmen and Senator's as each month goes by without a balance budget in a fair way for the American people?

No more pay once they leave the Senate or Congress~including past congressmen and senators. Also Senators and Congressmen and their families on the same Obama Care as the rest of the Citizens of our Country.
Why are our reporters and newspaper men not asking these questions. We all must sacrifice ~ they should as well.

I agree ! Good question ! Probably because most of the Media is also controlled by them . No budget ? No pay ! Good idea ! This budget stuff is getting old . Threaten their pay and they might get off their butts and agree on one !

A balanced budget is an admirable long-term goal, but it's neither urgent, nor worth depriving the needy. At this time it would be hard to raise taxes or cut govt spending enough wo cutting consumer demand and sending the economy back into recession. Nor is there any need to, since the US govt can borrow at zero percent.

They are legally supposed to pass a budget each year. But we all know the Democrats don't do their job and haven't in 4 years.

If they can borrow at zero percent how does that fix our 16 trillion dollar deficit we are now facing? Either way the debt must be paid. We ran out of money to help the needy a long time ago. Our dollar is weak, our credit rating has dropped. Who do you think will keep loaning us money (even at zero interest) and not end up saying PAY UP before you get another dime.our government was never set up to help the needy. It's not their original job. Instead they just keep people needy and owned.

IMHO, I would be happy if they would do any part of their job besides collect their paychecks

I think there are some congress people who try, but the system is structured for gridlock.
I'm not saying the US should default on its debt, just that now is the worst possible time to pay it back.

It would never happen. They only vote for salary increases. A bunch of thief's that rob the stupid voters.
