Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) on Tuesday proposed legislation to withhold Senate pay until Congress passes a bill providing economic relief to the American people during the coronavirus pandemic.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” McSally said in a statement.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games,” she continued.
“The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people,” she added:
If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should we.
