Withhold wages

To the Editor:

Let me ask you. If you hire someone to fix something in your house, and they don’t do it, do you still pay them? Of course not. Or what if they say, I’ll fix it in November. I’m sure most people would say, “Oh no you don’t.”

So why are we even paying our politicians in Springfield? They have failed to fix this awful pension debt that we are in. I believe their wages ought to be withheld until the state budget is fixed.
