Dear Colleague,

In the real world, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid. It should be no different for lawmakers who fail to do their job here in Congress.

It is our job to keep the government open. Regardless of the politics, Congress as an institution has failed our primary job. We are approaching almost three weeks under a partial government shutdown. That’s why I reintroduced HR 211, the Hold Congress Accountable
Act. This bill prevents Members from being paid in the event of a government shutdown. If we are foolish enough to continue letting the process break down, we should have our pay reduced for each day of any shutdown.

If you would like more information or are interested in cosponsoring HR 211,the Hold Congress Accountable Act, please reach out to Zach Stokes in my office at or 55711.


Member of Congress
