It must be a joke. I cannot remember a Congressman or Senator EVER sacrificing anything for the public good. I don't expect Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Diane Feinstein or Maxine Waters to suddenly forget they chose this career path for the good of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Diane Feinstein and Maxine Waters. Barack and Michelle's lavish lifestyle in the White House certainly does not inspire sacrifice. But there will be sacrifice from those who will be paying the taxes to maintain these lifestyles. A look back at Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette would be instructive.
