Letter to the Editor

The President and Congress have said that in order to cut the deficit that “everything” has to be on the table. Does “everything” include the pensions that members of Congress get? It seems to me that if anyone should get their pensions cut it should be Congress because they are the ones who passed the unbalanced budgets that created the debt in the first place. They want us to put Social Security on the table.  The way I see it if Congress doesn’t cut their pensions then not everything is really on the table.
