Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Um, no, I won’t be forfeiting my congressional pay during the shutdown

posted at 6:01 pm on October 3, 2013 by Allahpundit

More than 100 members of Congress, nearly half of them Democrats, have agreed to refuse their pay to share the shutdown hardship with furloughed federal workers. Wasserman-Schultz is, of course, no ordinary member — she’s the chair of the DNC. Naturally, the DNC is broke; as it turns out, so is Debbie herself. But here’s the thing: Even if she’s the rare congresscritter who’s living paycheck to paycheck, shouldn’t a professional politician tasked with a national leadership role by her party be able to dodge a question like this more artfully? Good lord. Even the lefties at TPM can’t resist highlighting it.

The Florida congressman was somewhat evasive when MSNBC’s Chuck Todd first asked about her salary.

“Because I support everybody who works for the federal government getting a salary, I continue to support reopening the government, making sure that everybody who is doing a job in the federal government can earn their salary and so that’s my position,” Wasserman Schultz said.

When Todd asked a follow-up, Wasserman Schultz gave a definitive answer.

“Yes, I’m gonna continue to take my salary,” she said.

Suggested answer: “I’d like to but, like many federal workers, I have kids in school and tuition payments coming up. Unlike most of my colleagues, I’m not rich. Still, I’d support a bill suspending the pay of all members of Congress until the shutdown is over, since that would send an institutional statement of solidarity to people who have been furloughed.” See? Sympathetic and supportive of the basic goal, and unlikely to cost her anything since that hypothetical bill almost certainly won’t be offered. If that doesn’t move you, though, here’s Mike Lee on the same subject. I don’t think this answer does him any favors — it’s easily spun by enemies as “I need to get paid to keep this shutdown going,” which is not a message you want out there when most of the public is opposed to shutdown — but at least there’s a principle involved, not just “Yeah, I want my money.”

“I don’t,” Lee said when asked if he refuse a salary like some members of Congress during the shutdown. “I’m working, I’ll continue to be paid.”

“You don’t want the lawmakers influencing their decision by whether or not they are going to get their paycheck,” he added. “You want them to come to consensus, you want them to get the government funded, and you want that to be on the basis of the merits of the decisions, and not on the basis of something else.”

His office says he’ll make a donation to charity for each day that the shutdown lasts. Via the Corner, here’s Debbie.

More than 100 members of Congress have made public pronouncements about refusing their pay. I know of at least one Congressman(member of my church) who is doing so but not making a public show about doing it. It’s a minor point but the assumption that any Congresscritter who doesn’t use the opportunity to push a charity or cause is keeping the money is wrong.

The outrage is not that Wasserman-Schultz continues to take her salary.

The outrage is that so high a percentage of our elected representatives are so wealthy from their political lives, and so out of touch with the plight of the average American taxpayer, that they can simply decide to forgo their salary and it not hurt them.

If a bunch of my co-workers got laid off, I would feel sympathy for them. But I couldn’t afford to stand in solidarity with them and give up my salary. I have a family to feed. But members of Congress have turned being a politician into such a lucrative business that their actual Congressional salary barely registers on their radars.

Pathetic.

Isn’t it amazing to watch the Democrats go bezerk over the Republican pushback? They have not tolerated any back talk for such a long time that it is just more than they can take. As for you RINOS, we have sat here and watched you remain very cozy in your positions while Obama has violated the Constitution time and again. Then, we listened as you said time and again that elections have consequences. And one more thing, how did Obama have barracades and signs up and ready to go so fast. I guess he was prepared for this nonsense the same way he is prepared the EPA and the Homeland security with tanks, guns, and ammo. He might just be waiting to roll that stuff out, too.

Landrieu said that “the Tea Party has to understand that they cannot hold government and our private partners–which are many from big companies like Boeing and Lockheed to small companies that are represented here–hostage over their inability to get a law that they don’t like amended.”

“It is my hope–my hope–that many brave men and women in the Republican party will stand up and close this Tea Party down,” Landrieu said.

Voted for:

Gun control

Obamacare, which provides for abortions

The Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Stimulus Act of 2009

DoddFrankenstein

Cash-for-Clunkers

Cash-for-Caulkers

5 debt ceiling increases under Obama

And, now, wants to destroy the Tea Party, which I understand is very popular in her state.

Let’s see how that works out for her next year in Louisiana where there is not a single Democrat that holds statewide office, there’s only ONE Democrat congressional district, and even BLACK Democrats are switching to the GOP.

She’s willing to let so many good federal workers go without a paycheck so she, her party, and her President can score political points for the 2014 midterms, but far be it for her to share the pain.
