Make Congress Critters Pay

With regard to the Chrysler and the GM deals, many say the administration has set a new precedent for government by disregarding contracts.

If so, why don't we penalize Congress members who have been in office for years and played a part in destroying the economy and our federal treasury?

I suggest we reduce their pensions by 2% for every year they have been in Congress. For example, Arlen Specter has been in Congress for 29 years. Under my plan, if he retired today, Specter's pension would be cut by 58% (29 years x 2%).

Sounds reasonable to me!
