Build the Budget

If the Congress and House took a 5% pay cut, had same cost of living as the military, stopped flying for anything but official buisness. They should have to pay for their medical and dental just like the military retirees and medicare useres and the co-payments, buy their own vehicals and homes jut like the military. Their retirement should be based on how the Civil Service is done not full pay forever but a percentage as those of us in GS, WG work enviroment. Why are they more important than those that put their life on the line to keep them safe or the elderly that rely on medicare and Social Security to live on for 1 month. Our goverment is not fair to the people they are supposed to protect. I know this is a pipe dream but I had to voice my idea.
