U.S, House Budget Committee member Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. Members of Congress are traveling less and worrying more about meeting office salaries. Their aides are having to deal with longer lines and fewer prospects of a raise. Such are the indignities thrust upon the people who brought the country $85 billion in automatic government spending cuts this month. "We've drastically reduced travel both for myself and my staff,"  said Campbell, who must go cross-country to visit his southern California district.
