Jim Broun started this petition to President Donald J. Trump

Every time we come to a budget decision, and lawmakers are split down the middle of HOW to resolve financial issues facing America, the government deems it appropriate to freeze the pay of government agencies (including military members) until they eventually decide to simply print more money.

What is the point of having elected officials, if they are completely impotent when it comes to making decisions and taking action.  Every time a simple issue rears its head in the political arena, politicians are more likely to over-complicate the issue, conflate the real issue with something else that was an agenda for their constituents  in their home state, or try to sneak in several other bills that have absolutely nothing to do with the issue at-hand.

When we run into budget issues, the FIRST consideration for pay stoppages, furloughs, and firings should always be the federal lawmakers themselves, who have not resolved a single issue in my lifetime.

Sign this petition to support freezing your political representative's pay when we reach budget impasses!
