Dock congressional pay

The federal shutdown just became the longest shutdown in the history of the United States. Its effects shouldn’t be minimized by those who aren’t federal employees. They affect everyone. To help make that point, there are articles about craft brewers, air travel and entitlement programs.

You know who’s still getting paid? Congress. Today, I signed a petition requesting that Congresspersons and their staff forego their salaries until the shutdown ends. It’s only fair after all. Though Congresspersons aren’t known to be fair when it comes to their own compensation and benefits.
