Why don't you congresspeople cut your pay to what the average person makes and stop making taxpayers like me having to pay for all these little "perks" that you vote in for yourselves? Stop offering "incentives" (welfare, housing, jobs) to illegal aliens. Put a cap on spending- when you run out of money, stop spending something that isn't there. Common sense is obviously not something that the government has.
This would really LOWER the national DEBT, but I suppose no one will ever listen to someone like me, anyhow.
