How The Japanese government (Opposition + Majority) takes care of it people.

Japan’s ruling party agreed with the opposition on Monday for members of parliament to take a cut in pay to fund reconstruction efforts after this month’s deadly earthquake and tsunami, Kyodo news agency reported.

The pay cut, equivalent to about 14 percent of a member’s annual income, would add 2 billion yen ($25 million) to Japan’s biggest rebuilding effort since post-World War Two reconstruction, Kyodo said. [Link]
