    This no pay till we get a budget thing reaks of a  Frank Luntz focus group idea.

    If you read any article from like yahoo news or something like that and goto the comments you are going to find a ton of "I got an idea for the deficit lets cut congresses pay and benefits!" posts with even more tons of green thumbs ups.

    and if the Dems fight it, the repubs will work it into the propaganda machine...

    Dems won't take pay cut to help economy! (Que fox news commenter shocked expression)

    You know they will!

    the Dems need to get in front of this, stupid idea or not. High profile Dems could voluntarily forgo pay for a while and challenge the repubs to do the same (all the while reminding people they have to do it voluntarily cause changing the pay in session is unconstitutional).
