I agree that a recess should be prevented. If you are making $170,000, after taxes and expenses, you are basically middle class. It is very arbitrary for anyone to judge another's salary as adequate saying that they can afford to miss a paycheck. Congressmen and women have expenses and families that they are supporting too. I feel that their paychecks should not be with held, but that should. To be able to leave Comgress until a viable decision has been reached and voted upon.
