My husband and I were discussing the economy today.. we wondered if the congress/senate and house members were asked to pay reduction to the US National average Household income would that drive our gov't to do something REAL? Well we decided to see we did start a petition asking the Legislative Powers to do just that... will they? If there were enough signatures would that prompt action? Lets see. Take a look at the petition here: petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/lower-debt-lowering-pay-elected-official-median-household-income-state-represent While there look at other petitions and take action...lets see how our leaders respond. Whats your opinions?
