    Congress. NO PAY until they start working for the people and not the special interest groups.

    ........ The Wealthy Fatcats, and at the top of the list.....Biden and Obama, and Their Families...... let the paying out on taxes and other issues, be trickle down, unlike what used to be the case..... Us taxpayers, in the ever dwindling middle class, and me, in the lower class economically..... " Let the Wealthy Pay, More, Than Their Share " ......2013 needs to be a complete overhaul of high paid salaries for Ceo's and Politicians that don't represent what American Citizens desperately Need, ..... the Fiscal Cliff.......Us Americans are all dead already from the high fall to the ground.......

    All government bureaucrats deserve a 50% paycut. Those in the military need a serious raise.

    Government pensions, salaries, expenses and benefits. Example: In San Jose CA is a supervisor getting a $225,000 retirement pension for being in the Sharif's Department for 20 years. Now he is getting $130,000 more to be a supervisor that will lead to another huge pension plan. The governor of CA has pensions for being the mayor of Oakland, Governor, Sec. of State, Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustee, chairman of the California Democratic Party. When he retires at the end of his second go around as governor (now 16 years) he may get over $300,000 a year for his pension. More than he made when in office.

    We need to start pay cuts with the government, cutting from the top down, eliminating some jobs while paying others much, much less.

    ....all elected Federal officials, then take a hard look at State, County, and local officials. Once the dust settles, fire 1/3 of the unelected bureaucrats at all levels and cut the salaries of the reminder by 20%.

    That GSA party that everyone thought was so scandalous was nothing.

    The private sector suffering through Obama's Great Oppression has been force to pay for a wild four year (Now to likely be an eight year one.) party for the public sector.

    They have so many problems reducing the spending but never mention themselves in the same sentence. Start with all the lawmakers. Every last one of them that take too much off the taxpayer's backs and think they are doing something positive. They vote themselves raises and benefits. How ridiculous is that?

    With government officials. But of course Obama issued an executive order today that raises the pay of government officials and federal workers. $11,000,000,000 (11 billion) over the next 10 years. Shame.

    All government employees that make over $100K need to be cut. The top government anual salary needs to be $99,999.99. Any work that needs higher expertise than grunt work should be contracted to the private sector. It should be made by open public bidding on the internet available for viewing by anyone. All congressmen and senators should only be paid for the days they are actually in the halls of congress or in the office of their home district. No pay for time campaigning or trips. That would be a nice start.
