I challenge all those who are now independently wealthy = you do not need a public pay check to live on. You have residual income from your personal life, enough to miss a Gov. public funds pay check. Then from Romney to all others.
The challenge is something like this.
"I will NOT take a pay check for my work in my office until we Pass a budget, Balance the budget and National debt, I will not ADD to the deficit by taking my pay on a credit card of a foreign nation such as China, as America is Bankrupt. So I will be a true leader and ask my colleagues to follow my example. And lets Fix America from the top down."
I think this would go along way with the public, as they do work for us... since we American's must sacrifice now in our personal lives, the government which has been out of control for a very long time must now sacrifice as well, and not gain wealth and riches as American's suffer.
