Politicians’ pay and insurance should stop during shutdown
To the editor:
I have a suggestion that I feel would help avoid government shutdowns in the future.
There should be a law put in place that if there is a government shutdown, the pay of every senator and every representative and our president and vice-president would stop at that moment and when the government was restarted again, their pay would not be retroactive. That pay would be lost forever.
