The 113th Congress - Paycuts?

President Obama and his Cabinet are taking voluntary paycuts.  (Photo/

President Obama volunteered to cut his pay,
And Chuck Hagel also made that gesture yesterday...
Showing solidarity with people who've been hurt
Due to sequestration cuts.  Does Congress feel like dirt?

Doesn't seem to be the case...  Their pay has not been cut,
Whether they are working hard or sitting on their butt.
I think, as incentive, with the Congress so dead-locked
If they do not do their jobs, their paychecks should be docked.

They would have to prove they'd made one compromise that day;
Listened, open-minded, to what their opponents say.
They should have to do the work we sent them there to do.
I've signed the petition; click this link and you can too.
