“For the past five years, I have voluntarily returned a portion of my salary to American taxpayers. Washington spends too much, and I realize that taking responsibility and leading by example is a critical step toward achieving financial responsibility.
“Washington can do more with less. It is time to implement this principle and be fiscally responsible with taxpayer resources.”
In 2010, Representative Daniel Webster advocated for rolling back the salary of Members of Congress to 2008 levels. Although no legislative action was taken at that time, Rep. Webster has consistently returned the difference in his salary. Representative Webster is committed to setting an example that Congress should get serious about getting our fiscal house in order.
