List of Congress Members Waiving Pay or Donating Salaries During the Government Shutdown

Below is a list of members of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives who are voluntarily donating their pay checks to charities. What’s truly amazing is that they are getting paid at all since they are federal employees.

In total, there are sixty-four members at the moment, and as you can see, it includes both Democrats and Republicans. Just another sign of unity for the Democratic party and that the Republican party is keeping its distance from President and the government shutdown.

The list was compiled by CNN.
