    talking about cutting CONGRESSIONAL PAY first?

    stop payment to members of congress
    stop payment to their staff
    stop healthcare payment to them too
    stop paying retirement benefits to ex congressional members
    close the gym ASAP
    shut down the cafeteria in the capital
    take back ALL their cars
    stop reimbursment payments for their junkets

    ZERO out the cash we give to congress FIRST and do it as a precaution to default meaning DO IT NOW

    I mean if these dumb reps want to shut down government lets start with THEM and see how loudly they continue to call for default when they are the ones NOT getting paid
