Congress, president need to resolve impasse

OK, Congress and the president are at an impasse. Government employees who need an income sooner than Congress and the president are going without pay. Maybe both Congress and the president should volunteer to go without pay until the issue is resolved. If they can’t step up to the plate to do this, then the American public should demand they do so until the issues are resolved.

We pay them to do their job and they aren't doing the work to resolve the impasse. Lee Iacocca said he would work for a dollar when Chrysler was in a financial crisis. Why can't Congress and the president in this crisis?
