Duckworth will cut own pay if sequester happens - DailyHerald.com

I’d rather Duckworth just give us our money’s worth instead.  Just a note to Gene Spurling to knock off the threats to Woodworth would be worth what she’s giving up.

A suburban Democratic congresswoman says she plans to put her money where her mouth is in the event of a sequester.

U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, of Hoffman Estates, plans to take a pay cut of 8.4 percent if automatic spending cuts go into effect Friday, as they will if Congress fails to reach a plan to deal with the country's deficit.

Study my Letter on Diana@Philosophyinaction.com. (Search: Crazy Inbox)

Money STOLEN FROM the taxpayers, etc., BELONGS TO the taxpayers, etc., & can't be used as revenue, salaries, etc., by the politicians.

The so-called "federal government" is not only BANKRUPT, It's Head- Over- Heels In Debt, & It Has A Huge, &Increasing, BUDGET DEFICIT. There's virtually zero $ for anything whatsoever.
