Handel to DC Politicians: "Give It Back"
Tuesday, 01 October 2013

October 1-- Former Georgia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel today said the current government shutdown is the result of a "failure of leadership in Washington" and called on the President and members of Congress to return their pay to the Treasury during the shutdown.



"The government shutdown is a result of a failure of leadership in Washington and the inability of those we elected to do their jobs. And, what are we hearing from Washington this morning? Excuses and blame -- neither of which are going to stop the destructive effects of Obamacare on the American people and our economy; neither of which are going to get our country's fiscal house in order," Karen said.  

"It's time for real leadership and a rational plan to cut the reckless spending, including the trillions related to Obamacare, before it bankrupts our country and dims the opportunities of future generations," Karen added.  "In the real world, if you don't do your job, you don't get a paycheck
.  Congress and the President should forfeit their pay during the shutdown.  They clearly are not earning it."
