Big deal about liberal democrat Mark Dayton not taking a paycheck. He's a multimillionaire from inhereted wealth.

Taking pay to do what? What they do even if there weren't a shutdown wouldn't even be considered work.

Dayton should be the one paying them. He's the one who's causing this to be dragged out.

These people still collecting a paycheck are disgraceful both Democrats and Republicans!

At least Dayton is keeping his personal chef, maid, and butler on at taxpayers expense as essential government services. I'm glad he's making sacrifices like everyone else.

Should this surprise us? I think they should get a raise!

I wonder if Dayton will be able to survive without a paycheck?

He's probably never earned an honest dollar in his life. Then again, has any politician?

Every one of these legislators should be ashamed of themselves. That is especially true of those who are multi-millionaires. My representative is on that list, and I know he certainly doesn't need the money.
