I support The Congressional Pay Freeze Act because...why should there be an increase in wages when Americans are having their hours cut back due to O'Care?

I support S. 30 ("A bill to prevent the 2013 pay adjustment of persons holding senior positions in the") because...if you can't reach across the aisle and work together to reach a consensus, you sure do not deserve a pay raise. Honestly, I would love to see each and every one of you completely lose your pay and benefits until a decent, workable budget is reached.

I support S. 30 ("A bill to prevent the 2013 pay adjustment of persons holding senior positions in the") because our country is in terrible fiscal shape. Your constituents are suffering at the hands of political leaders who fail to pass a budget. I believe political leaders deserve payment for the work done for they've done, but it should be substantial and deemed "good" by the masses. You are failing, and we are watching.

I support S. 30 ("A bill to prevent the 2013 pay adjustment of persons holding senior positions in the") because...my pay in a corporation was performance based and yours should be as well. Raising Taxes to balance the budget is not an option!

I support S. 30 ("A bill to prevent the 2013 pay adjustment of persons holding senior positions in the") because...How dare you vote yourselves a raise while you do NOTHING to stop the out of control debt! You vote to increase payroll taxes and take 2% right from the middle-class, and you have the audacity to give yourselves raises! SHAMELESS! You take an additional $150 a month from me and you think it should go to you!?!?!
