Freeze pay for Federally elected Officials...


Every time our Congress cannot pass a budget for the State of the Union, all federal employees lose out on getting paid, except for the US Congress. This is totally wrong! Next time they cannot pass a bill to pay for funds for Federal employees, they should be the first ones not to receive a paycheck.

These politicians receive a lot of benefits from our government for housing, traveling, food and for whatever, not to mention, the money that they get from the special interest groups. Their paycheck alone is more than what the average doctors earns.
