Congress, their aides and the President should not get any salaries until they straighten out the budget. I think that would give them more incentive to get something done.



  Yes, but what if that just motivated them to "straighten it out" by raising taxes? When crafting reform proposals, it's important to carefully consider the nature of the incentives they would create.

  On another note, I observe with dark amusement from John's forward that it's no longer just "my government" or "my president", but now it's "my Barack Obama". Dot com doesn't seem like the right Internet domain suffix there; "dot ugh" would be more appropriate. He's not mine!

Love & Liberty,
