No Pat for Congress--The Shutdown
The New York Times' Nicholas Kristoff says today that if the government shuts down, members of Congress should go without pay . He concludes, "If members of Congress shut down government and trigger a new financial crisis, then they shouldn't just have their own pay docked. They should also learn the discipline of a market economy and be fired by the public that they are betraying."
