Solution to Cut Politicians’ Pay Goes Viral

The solution came from an unlikely source and quickly gained popularity on Twitter.

Actress Kirstie Alley opined that perhaps politicians pushing lockdown policies should forego their salaries while their constituents are suffering from the consequences of their decisions.

The vocal actress made the suggestion from her official social media account and it got thousands of positive interactions.

“My solution. All senators congressmen governors and city political officials from any state or city who impose shut downs to the extent that businesses and people have no form of income, take no salaries for the duration of the shutdown,” tweeted Alley.

“Leadership leads by example & from the top,” she added.
The missive received more than 12,500 retweets and more than 116,700 likes from social media users.

The outrage aimed at pro-pandemic politicians has peaked after several incidents of appalling hypocrisy from politicians ignoring social distancing guidelines while haranguing their constituents to follow the rules.

In one of the most egregious examples, Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, was caught at a lavish dinner at an exclusive restaurant called French Laundry. Photographs showed that he eschewed wearing a mask and his dinner companions neglected to distance themselves. Newsom later apologized for setting a bad example.

A few days later at the same ritzy restaurant, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, also a Democrat, was caught celebrating the birthday of a local wealthy socialite. Breed confirmed it was her at the restaurant.

Alley has been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and has not shied away from using her social media account to express her political beliefs. On Tuesday she signaled that she supported the effort to question the results of the 2020 election.

“I’m still holding the line by the way…. @realDonaldTrump .. I’m here till they drag me away,” she tweeted.

Here’s Kirstie Alley talking about her support for Trump:

  1. There’s no way their pay should be cut in half. These elitist are adored by the liberals. Look at how many people are upset by what Kirstie Allen said. Under no circumstance should these political icons be able to insider trade in the stock market. That in itself is pitiful. The problem is we’ve let these kings and queens lie cheat steal and live in the public sector there entire lives and it must stop now. Don’t cut their salary in half – eliminate their salary altogether and then maybe these multi-millionaires will get out of public service. Things need to change immediately in this country to promote ALL public servants to seek employment in the public sector. Who and where can anyone in this country issue themselves pay raises up to 70% every fours years! No one. These prima donnas know nothing about business in the private sector and it will never change unless we make them change. Great for u Kirstie for starting an avalanche. Republicans and Democrats should fight this one fight together.

  2. Politicians only need a Two or Four years in Congress and one payment for those years and NO more. If They get a Salary of $ 170,000.00 a year for their Two or Four year term
    So be it .Then it should be CUT OFF from there on out. And NO ! Retirement no Severance Pay after their terms are Up.

  3. Someone out there with the means should start a petition to stop the Congress and Senate’s pay Maybe if they start loosing just like everyone else this crazy ness will stop.

  4. The polls seem to show Trump favored by 80-90%… Nasal sprays seem to show that users have an immunity to the Corona virus, but no one is promoting the use there of…

  5. The president has a limit of 8 years. Any position in politics should have a limit of 4 – 8 years. These career politicians just milk us tax payers for all they can take. We the people should be the ones to vote if they get a raise or not. Kristey Alley is right! The attitude of these politicians thinking the rules they put on us does not apply to them is BS. Then we get fined or arrested for disobeying. I guess if we deeply apologize for not obeying, we should not have to pay the fines or be arrested. Such as Gov. Newsom. Keep up the good fight Kirsten Alley

  6. These people eat in the in the same building they work and do not have to pay for it three meals a day they have all the requirements of a city in the building.

  7. Term Limits. No pay after they are finished. Tax them the same as us. Have them pay into Social Security like the rest of the deplorables. See if they can live on it without all the handouts they are used to.

  8. A limit on years should be 8 yrs and their pay should be limited also. They get rich when they go to DC and like Biden didn’t do anything for the people in 47 years! To me that is stealing and our Ten Commandments say Thou shall not steal? Cheated with the help of a lot of crooks who might be our 46st President! He’ll never be my President because he is without morals, and a person can’t justify that! Biden runs with a lot of evil people! THE SWAMP

  9. No work nothing being done! NO PAY!!! Yet they make us stay home LOSE our JOB!!!! No pay for YOU!! Mater fact I am sick of them telling us WHAT WE HAVE TO DO AND GO BY. YET THEY don’t have to follow a THING! With this virus they have become the BOSS OF OUR LIVES, But got news for them it’s our rights that we don’t have or make us do ANYTHING… THAT IS THE USA so great… WE THE PEOPLE HAVE OUR RIGHTS…..THEY need to PISS OFF……

  10. I totally agree! No pay just like ordinary people! Let them experience what the normal people feel! Maybe then they will have some respect for the people! They are suppose to be representing and working for the people!

    Term limits! ASAP Need to go into effect! The senators need to stop voting themselves automatic raises! NO JUSTICE!!! Also, same insurance as us Medicare and retirement SOCIAL SECURITY Benifits just like majority of elderly people! No more body guards and continued benefits once they are not senators or active Representatives! Just like ordinary people when we leave our jobs!

  11. Send Kirsty back to the fat room. If this is the best she can think of. The constitution sets their salaries, I believe. If so, just cut the ones that vote against it in congress–that will make them run to get signed up.

  12. I’ve always said the same. Multimillionaire pelosi and all the others continue being paid by us while sinking the country and its workers, the traitors and fifth columnists that they are. Meantime those who TRULY made this country what is today are struggling to put food on their table.

  13. No pay for bad behavior for sure, but perks, benefits, and other payments for lavish wining and dining need to be taken away as well – my company does not reimburse me for clothes, food, and other expense accounts – so why are we providing credit cards and lavish perks to these rug rats? They work for us – time to get down to business!

  14. Good for you Christie Alley. I think since we have a hand full of lawyers running the country and the senators are not doing anything at all they should take their checks away and give up their jobs. What do we need all these people collecting big paychecks for if there doing nothing. Let them see how the other half lives. They all need a rude awakening. And your right no one can open their businesses make any money. yes, they should go without a check like the rest of us. They seem to forget they work for us not the other way around.
