(Tampa Tribune) Florida Sen. Bill Nelson says he’ll co-sponsor filing legislation to dock paychecks for Congress members by the same percentage as any federal worker furloughed as a result of sequestration.

“No one should get paid for inaction,” Nelson said in a news release. “And Congress clearly hasn’t done the job to avert the sequester.

“Everyone expects us to work together and find a common ground. But too many in Washington keep fighting for their own political side.”
