I would like to see every politician who claimed to be on the side of the working class make this pledge. I would like to see every Democrat who accused the Republicans of being the "Party of the Rich" do this. I would like to see every Leftie politico do this.

The new "left-wing President" (like there is also a right-wing President) of Boliva, Evo Morales, has cut his salary by more than a half to a little over $1,800 per month. ($1,800 per month? Can I run for president of Boliva? I could use a raise!)

You know what else I would like to see? Congressmen making minimum wage. They keep telling us that raising minimum wage would cost business money and jobs. Yet Exxon and Chevron are recording record profits!

yeah i have to say i'd like to see our politicians take a giant pay-cut too, especially since they spend half their time in office (ie receiving tax-payer funded paychecks) campaigning instead of actually working.

as for the minimum wage thing... not so much.
