How to solve the problem: Cut the salaries of Congress by 20%, cut all State officals by 20% cut Govenment personnal that have salary over $150,000 per year by 20%. this is a start. All personnal will continue work there normal hours.

The Govenment officals or Department Heads not capable of furloughing and planning work schedules. People in the US lost jobs, had reduction of salary to keep working or keep a company in business. SEND THIS TO THE PRESIDENT!!!!!
