Senator Boxer: No Pay for Congress if Government Shuts Down
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer 2013-01-23 18:03:55
Yesterday I introduced the Government Shutdown and
Default Prevention Act, legislation that would prevent Members of
Congress and the President of the United States from being paid during a
default or shutdown of the federal government.� To read more, please go
default on our nation�s debt or a deliberate shutdown of our government

legislation would send a simple message to members of Congress � if
you take these actions that will severely harm the American people, you
don�t deserve and won�t receive a paycheck.
