I'm for cutting Conservatives Social Security and Medicare during the shutdown, in addition to Congressional pay and expenses (sans staff salaries).
Why should we fund the basis of the problem- TeaPartiers and their supporters who hate the President more than they love their own country? Why do we pay people entitlements who bitterly complain about OTHER people getting entitlements?
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
Also, MANY congressmen and woman are forfeiting their salaries... Hell, a lot of the tea party representatives refuse pay or any other perks generally provided by the taxpayers via government already.

But in reality, we see with your posting that is really all a lie.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

For the Bush plan to have worked would have required either a huge decrease in spending, which no one from either party was willing to do, or a tax increase, which only the Democrats would be willing to even consider.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
