It’s time to put Americans above politics, says Arizona Senator Martha McSally.
As gridlock and partisan politics continue in Washington D.C., Senator McSally has threatened to introduce a bill that would withhold senator pay “until Americans are put before politics.”
If passed, senator salaries would be paused until the Senate is able to come together and agree on a COVID-19 relief package.
While politicians continue to enjoy salaries and benefits like healthcare without worrying about a recession, every day Americans are worried about what their next paycheck will look like.
Others are worried about how their financial situation could potentially detiorate in the coming weeks or months.
Senator McSally understand the fear that many Americans have and wants our leaders to act with urgency.
