Great suggestion and that would make those politician stand and notice.
And just how do you propose to do that since "those politicians" are the same ones who would have to vote on any changes to their pay & benefits?

Do you people understand how Congress works at all?

Obviously not, which is why they continue to ignore you.

We there may be some confusion among the citizens, but we know Obama doesn't know how the constitution works and which are his duties and which are those delegated to congress and the states.

dont like CEO pay? easy, start your own company, make yourself CEO and pay yourself those big bucks.

keep it green, and keep a small carbon footprint, and someday you too can sell out to oil money like the biggest envirowhacko phony in history, Al Gore.
