Legislative Branch

Federal Government cuts should be across the board

I don't understand how the Senate can get a pay raise while the rest of us are looking at pay cuts. Even the most junior legislator makes considerably more than I, so why is my life less important. If those of us on the bottom of the charts should "suck it up" and take a cut for the good of the country, why shouldn't Senators and Congressmen, the President, and Department Heads? It is easier for someone making $190,000 to lose 6% than it is for someone making $25,000. If it is good for the nation, it should be good for everyone and applied evenly. If nobody in government gets a cola increase, it should mean NOBODY.
