I want you to know that I am working around the clock with members of both parties to find solutions to get the government running again to reform healthcare and focus on jobs.
In the meantime, I have asked the House Administrator to withhold my pay during the shutdown.
Furthermore, I have co-sponsored a bill which blocks Members of Congress from collecting a salary during a government shutdown. You can read it here.
Measures like these are necessary to force all parties to the table to get things done.
Also, I voted to make sure Members of Congress have to live under Obamacare just like everybody else. For the record, my family and I do not use the Congressional healthcare plan.
As the Pelosi spin machine churns on, please forward this to your friends so that they know the facts.
