To the editor:
Millions are out of work due to the government shutdown, as if the unemployment rate was not bad enough already. Home mortgages cannot be paid, and homes may go into foreclosure again. Senators and representatives still get their COLA even in a recession. Meanwhile soldiers have no paid furloughs.
Congress fights basically over everything. Their agenda is to disagree and take control like greedy bullies and go into recess with nothing accomplished. They should negotiate for the common good. I think they should not get paid until they get the job done.
