If there is another government shutdown, let it be complete. This time, don't pay the president, or the Congress. They are the cause for the mess we were in. It's only "fair" that they loose their pay just like everyone else did. They are paid to be the "servants of the people," not to hold the country and the people hostage for what they want.
Hopefully, the voters will remember this when elections come around. For my money, I say vote them all out of office. Look at what salaries, perks, etc., each one of them costs the taxpayers. Are any of them worth it?
