Who should pay during the government shutdown?

To the Editor:

I have just recently read more than one letter to the editor expressing the most logical solution for a shutdown. The paychecks that should be “stopped” should be those of our Representatives and Congressionals. And so much more $$$$ would be saved, and not a worry about a mortgage payment!
Then and finally a solution would be worked out, if they felt a need for that check.
