My thought is we should lower Congress pay scale by 30 percent and make them pay a portion of their benefits just like the American people, if you can not afford benefits for the people than why does Congress feel entitled. This is more of entitlements than medicare, and social security .

It's about time. At the same time, slip in an amendment that limits terms to three, max. Then slip in an amendment that NO Congress/Repr can work after "retiring" for a company that does work with the govt. for five years.
