How About a Pay Cut for Congress?!

Demand that Congress get a pay cut!!
Since 2004, congressional pay has increased from $154,700 in 2003 to a whopping $174,000 (for current year 2011).
What have they done to earn it? They waste our money in wars we don't want, and don't to anything to replace the jobs shipped overseas.
Let's petition a 10% pay cut for 2012!
Are you in?

Why is this important?

We the People pay Congress to do their job, and frankly they haven't been doing a very good one lately. Wasting our time and money over partisan power struggles and not caring if we default on our debt.
They are the only workers I know of that take the liberty to give themselves raises, whether or not they deserve or have earned them. Yet there are members of Congress who would like to take away the hard earned benefits (like Social Security & Medicare) that ordinary people have contributed to all of their working lives.
