    If you're sick and tired of the President and Congress acting like spoiled brats - while holding you and your families hostage to their "childish games", then please let your voice be heard and sign the petition at http://wh.gov/vmcm Here is what the petition says: “Sharing the Sequestration Pay Cuts w/Congress and the President If federal employees are required to take furloughs and suffer 20% pay cuts, Congress (Senate and House) members and President Obama (the people who are responsible for the sequester and the resulting furloughing of federal employees) will "share the pain" by taking 20% pay cuts themselves. Members of Congress and the President (due to their inaction) will take responsibility and in a show of solidarity and unity with the 800,000+ employees - who through no fault of their own will be forced to accept 20% pay reductions - will share equally in the pain and suffering that they themselves are responsible for.” If the President and Congress want to act like babies, then they should be treated as such - diapers, pacifier and all.

    Congress members cannot. See the 27th amendment.

    They all should take a 20% pay cut. Congress can't do what? Voluntarily take a pay cut? They should. And if the Obama family wants to vacation, they should do it in DC where all the government owned museums will be closed on furlough days.

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT! If we acted like Congress and the President in my Agency we would be fired. Not everyone is making $100000 a year as Congress thinks. The majority or GS=7 or below.

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT!!!! I am tired of being a pawn. If we acted and made the decisions that the president and congress have made we would be fired in my Agency. Not every Federal Employee makes $100000 like Congress and the Public think. Most of us or GS-7 and below. We are working our butts off with more work and less people. There is no one in my office that is a slacker like we have been portrayed in the media. I would not recommend civil service to anyone I know.
