1. Oh, surely they won't have to do that

if they drop the politicians down to below 30 hours a week, get some wage concessions, & eliminate their health benefits.

4. Below 30 Hours?!

You know Boehner only had congress meeting twice a week.

5. Sure, but they're paid as if they were full-time.

Just let the books match the reality…

7. Well, I got an idea

Just pay them what they're worth. Most congresscritters are worthless, and any congresscritter who takes money from the Koch Bor$ is most definitely worthless.

2. Just a half dozen? They would save a lot more if they laid

off over a couple hundred in congress and the senate. Come on boys, save money. Times are hard and getting harder.

3. pay them minimum wage, and only for the hours worked, plus no benefits. See how fast things

would improve for the poor and middle class.

6. The Kochs laying off Congress? What the hell does that mean?

They don't decide Senators and Congressmen.
