AOC: hold congress paychecks during shutdowns Show more
Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demands legislation that would put Congressional salaries on hold during government shutdowns, as they are on hold for other US government employees https://www.alternet.org/could-stop-congress-forcing-shutdowns
@acrata That's a frequent response. It's long bothered me.
Instead: void all outstanding government payments, and restrict all tax deductions.
That'll create a motivated constituency to end the shutdown.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
