Letter: Unfair, illogical

I find it incredible but apparently true that Congress is continuing to collect its paychecks during the government shutdown. By what possible standard of fairness or logic could our elected representatives think that appropriate?

My suggestion: Congressmen and senators and their staffs receive no pay during the shutdown, nor any of their many benefits, including health insurance. And their cushy dining rooms and gyms be locked up until the shutdown is over. Perhaps if they have a chance to experience life with no health insurance coverage, they will better be able to understand Obamacare.
