Partial government shutdown: Ocasio-Cortez calls for furlough of congressional salaries

By Megan HenneyPublished December 22, 2018

Newly elected New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, called for a furlough of congressional salaries in the event of another government shutdown on Saturday.

@Ocasio2018

Next time we have a gov shutdown, Congressional salaries should be furloughed as well.

It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision.

Have some integrity.

🚨 It's official: The US government has partially shut down because Congress couldn’t reach an agreement on Trump's demand for border wall money.https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/nidhiprakash/shutdown-border-wall-congress?bftwnews&utm_term=4ldqpgc#4ldqpgc

That’s not a gift I’m interested in continually “receiving” whenever I log on here.  Maybe someone can start their own forum for this POS and those she entertains.

It's wise to keep one's eyes on the future of the democrat party.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Then why don’t we have a sub-cat devoted to that instead of to one obnoxious prat?

Why come to the category if you don't think it's worthwhile?

It still shows up on the recent posts and unread posts lists, which is what makes it obnoxious.  I get tired of having to manually clear it so I can see if anything new has been posted to the main category.

The sub-cats are frozen. Noting Romney Ryan's performance 2012 lives on forever.

Yeah I know.  It is a PITA.  I have asked management on more than one occasion to find a UBB hack that would allow a poster to block those notifications.
