U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill will introduce an amendment Friday that's aimed at making the sequester cuts as painful to federal lawmakers as it is to other federal employees. KSDK-TV reports that McCaskill's bill would cut senate and house paychecks by the same amount that a federal employee might have to take in a furlough. She told the station that if a federal employee has to lose a day's pay each week, then Congress should too. Eighty-five-billion dollars in automatic spending cuts begin today.
