Please don't cut my pay!

Rep. John Duncan

March 1, 2013

I cannot affor to lose 20% of my pay due to a sequester. I beg you to come to some sort of agreement with other members of Congress to balance the budget. It takes everything I make, which isn't much, to take care of my family. I work very, very hard at my job in order to provide for my family. I am the sole provider for myself, my daughter, and my 14 month old grandson. My good credit is all I have to protect my family. I fear that losing 20% of my pay will hurt my ability to pay my bills and ruin my credit. Please, please don't inact this tax on the middle class. I simply can't afford it. Please ask God what is right in this situation. Thank you for listening
