LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Politicians receive entitlements, too

- The Washington Times - Thursday, December 13, 2012

There was yet another story in the news recently about Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, wanting Democrats to cut entitlements. I would like to know why, with all the reporters Mr. Graham talks to, not one of them seems to have the nerve to ask him when he and his fellow congressmen are going to cut their own entitlement programs.

Let Congress take a 20 percent cut in pay and start reimbursing the government for all their perks. Mr. Graham has a lot to say about welfare programs, but no one receives more for doing less than politicians.
