Eliminate congressional staff bonuses

Since congress wants to cut off all pay raises and bonuses for government employees then perhaps they should have to do the same for their own staffers. I read in the paper that most congressional staffers got an 8% bonus this year while the rest of us are going to be capped at 1%. Why the discrepancy? Let that money go back to the treasury to pay down the debt.
