    If indeed the ELECTED members of the federal government are so very serious (you can't get more serious than sequestration) about how the federal government is throwing away money, then why don't they volunteer to pay of a tax of 100% on their salary and benefits for one year, or even 6 months or heck even a month.
    It might not pay all the bills but it certainly would show (in a vey moral way) how serious the elected officials are.
