Members of Congress will have no dilemma about the future of their own finances this week because the 27th Amendment to the Constitution specifically stipulates that the salaries of the House and Senate cannot change until a congressional election has come and gone. Members of both chambers currently make $174,000. I don't know about you, but I don't make anything near that! Let's shutdown congressional pay too!
I think we all need to SHUTDOWN at midnight and see where that takes us! Ted Cruz gets $174K! You gotta be kidding me!
