Enough with squeaking by on temporary spending bills and manufacturing one crisis after another culminating in the "sequester" of across-the-board budget cuts. Indifferent to the struggles of ordinary people, it should come as no surprise that while the rest of us live out the terms of their deal, congressional salaries are exempt from any reduction.
