Step in the right direction. Now they need to make all those Federal employees who have not paid taxes in years to pay them. I think the President and Congress should take a 25 percent pay cut and have to reduce their non essential staff. Also they should not be allowed their pay or benefits once they leave office. Once the Government starts tightening their belts then they can ask the taxpayers who already pay more than their fair share to tighten theirs. These tax cuts expire we will pay an additional 100k next year in taxes. I can afford to pay that will make cuts from charitable contributions since basically the extra 100k is charity for the Gov at this point. I just want to know if we have to give up more of our hard earned money others in Government are making cuts as well.
