    Hello everybody,

    The Kansas Democratic Party has a petition on their website about no pay for Congress if they don't raise the debt ceiling and the U.S. defaults. It goes to Kansas Congressional Republicans. The petition says, "Tell them to at least have the decency to refuse to accept a paycheck until the debt ceiling crisis is resolved. Google: "Kansas Democratic Party."

    Can you please ask moveon.org to make a similar petition on the national scale? You can ask them by clicking through their "Contact" page at the bottom of the home page.

    I have a link on my blog explaining how a consequence like this could break the deadlock. Just google "Reward and Consent No Paychecks for Congress."

    Thank you.
    Dave in New Jersey

    It would be purely symbolic

    I would rather just vote their asses out
