A Modest Proposal for Those Opposing Taxes

Here is a thought for those members of both Houses of Congress whose approach to “compromise” entails eliminating any language pertaining to using tax revenue to deal with the current budget crisis.  First, they should voluntarily refuse to accept any salary until the crisis is resolved.  Second, they should decline the health care package they receive in conjunction with their employment;  and pay for their health expenses out of their own respective pockets.  I cannot think of a better way for them to empathize with everyone else in this country trying to get through hard times.
