Comment: The country's debt is incredibly high and we are about to add to that debt via Obamacare. The value of the dollar will plummet and we will soon be in a true Depression. from Minster, OH by Curt

Comment: They should also be made to put it towards the budget!For them to go with out pay can't compare to the most of us.They make a lot more money,and have other jobs. from Lebanon, Oh.

Comment: Why should that make feel better?They are over paid to start with.They are always on break or vacation.I would like to know how they get richer for being a public employee?Oh wait I already figured it out they get to be multimillionaires by bribes and kick backs.Plus they don't have to pay into social security.That's only for us peons.I think they should all be fired and stripped of their pension.They have done nothing to better America.The only they have done is make themselves above the law and make themselves richer.Tar, Feathers,Politician some assembly required from America by Silence Dogood


Comment: They all must go on Obamacare and not keep their special and lavish taxpayer funded health care. They are not nobility and we are not serfs. from Dayton by Finn

Comment: Donating a portion of a six figure salary to charity is a grandstand show designed to divert attention from the real issue of their unwillingness to lead us forward as a successful Republic. from Fletcher,Ohio by Scott

Comment: Our politicians have 1 thing on their mind. Getting reelected and making sure they line their pockets with as much money they give to their cronies so they get campaign cash!! End results. We lose! from Dayton, Oh by Anthony

Comment: They all should from dayton ohio by gary

Comment: I don't any of Congress or the senate as a matter of fact no body in politics including the President and vice should get paid until they can get their heads out of their rears and stop thinking about themselves talk about selfishness! from Dayton by Becky

Comment: I would feel better if their pay were cut completely and benefits suspended! It used to be a public service to serve in the it is an elitist club with lifetime pay and benefits. from Fairborn/OH by Mike

Comment: No it doesnt make me feel any better they got us into this mess. If we tried to shut down the govt we would go to jail so I say lock them all up and lets start over who wants a shot? Cant do any worse than these guys. I think even the Hatfields and McCoys would work out better. from Dayton / OH by Nick

Comment: if they are donating their money maybe they need a pay cut to help balance budget sounds like they are over paid from Dayton/ OH by Steve

Comment: They all should be replaced in the next election from dayton ohio by david

Comment: instead of donating and then getting a charity tax break, they should just refuse their pay, but that is asking to much from Springfield, Ohio by Ron

Comment: They act like a bunch ob babies and were paying them.we need to fire all of you and start a new government not demo or repicians but a new AMERICAN PARTY and get. Rid of all your party's before you bankrupt the USA from dayton ohio by david

Comment: Its nice knowing you Congress and Senate when the American people vote you out of a job come the next election.then you'll know how it feel to be jobless and the new Congress and Senate pass a bill that there be no more free healhth care or retirement for you from dayton ohio by gary

Comment: I think all law makers including the President, senators, congressman should have no pay while a shut down of the goverment just like alot of federal workers not getting paid and alot of Americans also, are not the law makers receving federal pay (YES) say cut their pay until the shut down is over, not only pay but all other benifits also. from Enon Ohio by Jim Owens

Comment: no it don't they as well as Obama have caused the shutdown. they all don't deserved to be paid during shutdown. they are causing the military and d.c. police not to be paid so screw them! they don't deserve to be paid they all should be fired from dayton ohio by alice

Comment: I am posting the following because I am going to be sending this to all the local news stations in my area. I want to know if anyone Democrats or Republicans are getting their paychecks. As far as I'm concern not one of them even the President should be getting any money either, They should be the first one on the list to withhold their benefits because we elected them to handle these issues for us. But no the Military and the Veterans are being punished. How many Vets went to the VA Hospital today and was turned away. How many deployed Military are out saving our country and their families are here at home with no money. Can anyone tell me what is right about this whole situation. Has any of the news reported anything that is in depth about Obamacare, The answer is no. I will be writing everyone's name down that was elected from my area, if they are not actively trying to resolve this you will not be getting my vote, or maybe lets just not have career Politicians, one term only. from Englewood Ohio by Becky

Comment: Not really, they are already wealthy, and they'll just write it off on their taxes from Farmersville, Ohio by Angie

Comment: I don't care if they get paid, just stop obamacare before it breaks the bank. This falls solely on the Democrats for refusing to negotiate at all. They are all exempt so why aren't we? from Fairborn, OH. by Dave

Comment: No I think that the pay of law makers should STOP just like all other federal workers that have been off work, for they are federal pay just like we are, GAO should STOP pay now, get the media involved maybe happen. from Enon Ohio by Jim Owens

Comment: We need to vote them all out and start from scratch. It can't get any worse from Troy/OH by Dave

Comment: If the senators can give up pay, why can't the president give up pay,(if that is what you call him) He is the one that made the debt, he should help pay it!!! from Dayton OH by Steff
