Those who work should be paid. That is both fair and just, but failing to work and being paid is simply a form of theft.

While Socialist Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just fine with taking money from hardworking Americans to the tune of 70 percent to sacrifice to her idol, the State, several congressional Republicans have actually acted on what she will only talk about and denied themselves payment till the government shutdown is over. Montana Republican Senator Steve Daines has introduced legislation that would withhold pay for members of Congress during future government shutdowns.

“Members of Congress are sent to Washington, D.C., to represent the great people of their state and keep the federal government open, working and funded. So it’s simple. If they can’t do that, they shouldn’t get paid. No work, no pay,” Daines told The Daily Caller News Foundation after the bill was introduced.

The “No Work, No Pay Act of 2019” would put the payments congressional members are to receive in an escrow account and exclude them from receiving payments during a shutdown. Once the shutdown is over, the payments would be released and would not be in violation of the Twenty-seventh Amendment to the US Constitution.

So far, he has several other members of the Senate who have joined him in this effort.
