We have to pay congress though, it says in the constitution that the pay grade of a congressman in office can't be changed during there term. This is to prevent them from all agreeing to be paid more. Although this works both ways in the sense that we can't cut there pay either. Also refer to comment #8.

dont be foolish... probably 90% of politicians are already ridiculously wealthy. The ones voluntarily cutting their pay are likely just the rich ones that don't need the income in the slightest bit.

So essentially your government is taking a paid vacation.

Yes, except they gotta show up to a couple meetings and pretend they're trying to possibly get **** done for once. Then they borrow more money and put us in deeper debt.

Sadly, it's constitutionally impossible. Congress's pay can't be changed while they're in office. I think the amendment was designed to keep them from getting elected and immediately raising their own pay, but it might apply in this case too.

Actually most congressmen get their money from sources other than their paycheck. Usually investments and kickbacks.

That's not how it works.

except you'd have to pass a law to do that, and who passes laws???

I would agree with you... except for the fact that they are constitutionally obligated to get paid. To infringe on that would be like them infringing on your right to free speech. I hate it, if you don't do your job you shouldn't get paid for it, but then again isn't that what half the American work force does anyway?
