As hundreds of thousands of federal employees go without paychecks this week, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) is adamant about keeping her paycheck.
I need my paycheck. That’s the bottom line.
Maybe she does really need her paycheck. Maybe she has a family to feed and kids to clothe. But so does every other federal employee who has been furloughed or is currently working without pay.
Federal employees are people, too. They have real jobs. Their federal jobs feed and clothe their families. They need their paychecks. That’s the bottom line.
