“If the government shuts down, members of the military must stay on the job but not get paid. However, members of Congress, who ‘earn’ (and I use the term loosely) over $170,000 a year, have the option of declining their pay.”
WTF!!! Assuming the above statement to be correct – BULLfrigginSHIT!!!
There can be NO OPTION! Members of Congress – who’s actions and/or in-actions are the CAUSE of said Government shutdown, by the way – simply CANNOT receive PAY for same. Period!
