FILE - In this May 4, 2010 file photo, then-Indiana Congressional candidate Luke Messer arriving at a polling place in Carmel, Ind. 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. Messer, a freshman Republican from Indiana, said he hired fewer people when he came to Washington because "we essentially began the term knowing there was a high possibility of a sequester".
