Gov’t Shutdown Pay

“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!

Just my .02
