for starters, I’d approve of a congress czar slashing pay and benefits for congress by 90% every year they increase the debt ceiling

and also the congress czar would personally review and approve or disprove all requests for miltary aircraft to provide VIP travel except to a war zone containg US troops

Excellent idea.

How about this?

The czar could reduce pay and retirement benefits by 90% for any Congress person that used a military aircraft for any non-war zone travel. This would include any campaign event or any taxpayer funded junket or vacation, so long as the country is spending more than it takes in.

This would be a real incentive for Congress not to set a bad example by squandering our resources.
