Letter: Halt Congress salaries, benefits

To the editor:

Shame, shame on all of you, from the president on down through the Senate and the House of Representatives.

President Obama lives in the White House, owned by the American people, and acts more like a dictator than a president of and for the people, saying “My way or no way.”

As to Congress:

• First, the American people should demand they lose their salaries and benefits.

• Second, we should vote each and every one of them out of office at the earliest opportunity.

The president and Congress are holding the American people hostage while they play dangerous games, not to mention whatever good image and credit Americans may have left. They are fast ruining it.
