Deficit-cut­ting idea

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

As a quick deficit-cut­ting mea­sure, I sug­gest plac­ing the pres­i­dent, mem­bers of Congress, and mem­bers of the Supreme Court un­der a merit sys­tem pay pro­gram. Just think of the sav­ing if these in­di­vid­u­als were paid what they are worth rather than what they have voted to be paid.

(I also re­al­ize that the min­i­mum wage law will pro­hibit max­i­mum sav­ings from this pro­gram.) clauDe n. mcclel­lanD
