    Take away Senators and Representative salaries, and give them each a million dollars per year in escrow. Every time they vote for spending, a percentage of that spending is deducted from their escrow. At the end of the year, whatever is left is theirs. If they go into the negative, they have to pay that back.

    What if they vote for a tax cut without having a spending cut first?
