Thank you for sharing this. I already knew it, but it’s nice to give a visual for the general public to see. No one is in a rush to make a shutdown end. They are rich and not hurting. They gain from our misery.
This is the exact reason why we need term limits. No one goes and leaves broke. No one just does a brief stint and leaves. There is too much money to be made in addition to salary and lifetime perks after two/three terms in Congress. I don’t know why people aren’t up in arms about it. America is all talk, short on action. Fleeced by any mouth spewing flowery bullshit.
Congress, the biggest con game going.
