Taking sides in the Washington budget debate [Letter]

U.S. House of Representatives

The following letter was sent to U.S. Rep. Andy Harris. A copy was provided for publication.

I read where you are still putting it out to your constituents that Obama has not offered any plan for the sequester.

I know you know this is not true. If you need reminding it can be found at "Obama sequester plan."  Surely someone on your staff has seen it. Further, you and other Republicans refer to no taxes when in actuality what is offered is tax loopholes.

The House of Representatives has done nothing to resolve this in the past two months and has left Washington twice now without any intentions of negotiations. I suggest that members not be paid for these last two months and members salaries be reduced in proportion to the increase in unemployment that will result from this. For shame.
