Coming up this morning I will chat with Shane Mantalban, we will talk about a few different topics but there is one that might surprise you.This will raise some eye brows:
US Constitution: Section 6 [ 1 ] The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respected Houses, and going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.
a) No mention here that they are entitled to being paid if the government is shut down, why the exception?
b) Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace: really, how many have gotten away with this little rule?
c) for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place. Wow! I think modern media would be hard pressed to have US Senators and Representatives on TV if they are breaking the LAW!
