Winner take all. Apparently that's the attitude of Livingston County's two House members when it comes to their salaries.
Neither of Livingston County's two Republican representatives -- Bill Rogers or Cindy Denby -- has volunteered to give a portion of his or her legislative salary back to the taxpayers.
That's according to a check done by The Associated Press. Gov. Jennifer Granholm has been returning part of her pay for years, and lawmakers are supposed to take a 10 percent pay cut in 2010.
But you'd think our fiscal conservative Republican lawmakers would want to help out the taxpayers a little bit. Isn't that what happens in private industry when times get tough -- management takes a pay cut right along with the rank and file? And aren't we supposed to be running government like a business?
