Each year since his election to Congress, U.S. Rep. Daniel Webster has rolled back his salary to the 2008 level.
Last week, Webster once again hand-delivered a personal check to the U.S. Treasury to help pay down the federal debt.
“Washington needs leaders who mean what they say,” he said in a statement. “If we are serious about getting our fiscal house in order and reforming the process in Washington, it starts with us.
“It’s the principle of the thing,” he said. “Leadership starts with leading by example. It’s what hardworking families expect of their elected representatives in Washington. If the American people can do more with less, so can we.”
