GOP Lawmaker Says He's Earned His Paycheck

Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE) was blunt when the Omaha World Herald asked if he would continue collecting his paychecks during the government shutdown: "Dang straight."

What about the other members who were donating or forgoing their pay?

Said Terry: "Whatever gets them good press. That's all that it's going to be. God bless them. But you know what? I've got a nice house and a kid in college, and I'll tell you we cannot handle it. Giving our paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That's just not going to fly."
