Florida freshman Congressman Ron DeSantis (R) went on the House floor and announced that he is filing a bipartisan bill with Democrat Congressman Ami Bera of California, to “sequester congressional pay.” DeSantis later reiterated his remarks about sequestering his and his fellow members of Congress; pay on Fox News’ ‘On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren.”
According to DeSantis, to stay compliant with the 27th amendment to the Constitution, the congressional pay sequester would start the Monday after the next election, and would “create a new baseline” salary going forward.
DeSantis said that he is filing the bill “because its the right thing to do” regardless of what others in the Congress may think.
