Potential government shutdown

A modest proposal

If the House and Senate fail, yet again, to do their job, and the federal government shuts down Oct. 1, I have a proposal. [“Leaders bicker, shutdown looms,” page one, Sept. 21.]

As of Oct. 1, every member of the House and Senate, and all of their staff, should cease receiving all pay, health benefits and pension credits.

Let’s see if they can take it as well as they can dish it out.

Brad Goodwin, Seattle
