Letter to the Editor:

Congress should ‘share the sacrifice’

As Warren Buffett recently said, “It’s time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice.” He was referring to increasing taxes on the wealthy.

I think it’s time for the House and Senate to “share the sacrifice” by taking a salary cut. If their salaries were in line with the rest of us, maybe they would understand “deficit reduction” better. Also, each member should be limited to one aide.

If the members of Congress worked a little harder and spent less money, maybe we wouldn’t be in such dire straits.
