Rep Crenshaw's New Bill: No Pay for Prez, VP & Congress During Shutdowns

Isn't it amazing how incredibly different two politicians from the same community can be when we place their policy positions side-by-side?

Take Rep Sheila Jackson Lee, for example. The woman has been a lawmaker for over two decades and, while never passing a single bill to improve the lives of Houstonians, has constantly been engulfed in scandals while still managing to get elected over and over again.

And there's Rep Dan Crenshaw: a disable war hero and patriot who refused to accept a paycheck during the government shutdown, even after just getting settled into his new job as a lawmaker in DC.

But now Rep Crenshaw is taking it one step further by proposing the new the Solidarity in Salary Act on the house floor Tuesday afternoon saying "federal employees should never have to carry the burden caused by a dysfunctional government."

The proposed bill would withhold pay from the president, vice president and congressmen and be placed in escrow, then released after the government reopens.

Dan pointed out how 800,000 federal workers went without paychecks during the 35-day shutdown and somehow Pelosi, Trump and Schumer all still got paid. Granted, Trump rejects his paycheck and gives it to charity, but the same can't be said for Pelosi or Schumer.

Crenshaw is gonna make a great President someday.
