Stop Congessional Pay During Government Shutdown

108 Letters Sent So Far

Dear Mr. President and Congress,

Enough with the blame game. We do not care about which party is to blame. This is not a political game, this is our livelihoods. Why is it that you get to vote on things without the direct input from the ones you are supposed to be fighting for? We elected you into office and we will elect you out. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Why are you being paid when over 800,000 federal employees are not? We didn't shutdown the government, you did! Enough blaming one another. Mr. President, you are the leader of our nation. It is time you act like it. Get to work, solve these issues, and get our government running again. In the meantime, whatever you are being paid should be put right back where it came from, right back to the taxpayer who helped elect you to be part of the solution instead of the problem!

We hired you. You work for US ! Right now, I'm so proud not to be affiliated with either party but so ashamed to say I did vote for you.
I have had enough of the political party games. Our people are hurting and it is your fault. You are suppose to work for us. You are our representatives . Take action and quite acting like children.

We both work for the Federal Prison Complex in Butner, NC.We are required to work without pay with convicts,sex offenders, mental health, and the most disgusting people you can imagine. I know no one in Washington DC or Capital Hill would ever walk inside a prison without protection or having the entire prison on lockdown.We protect the community. We work very hard, pay our creditors, healthcare,city, state, and federal taxes. So the president, senate, and congress cannot work together and they blame everyone except themselves for their mistakes, decline, and failure. We the people of the United States of America are not protected or served in any way.The middle class is no longer and is being hurt the most by your politics and behaviors. The politicians should not be paid due not doing their jobs.
