It is my opinion that no one gets paid if they do not work. The public expects the president and members of Congress to uphold the Constitution and to respect the laws of the land. Cooperation and respect for each other to work together to meet the needs of ALL of the people they serve is paramount. We would all be better served if the money from lobbyists and financial supporters were removed from politics. Money influences how they vote which , in my opinion, is considered a bribe.
