O’Donnell Puts Her Money Where Her Mouth Is

Only Candidate Willing to Put Her Salary On the Line


Saint Joseph, MI – Dr. Sherry O’Donnell, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, announced that she will not take her salary as a United States Senator if she votes for an unbalanced budget.  


“Our nation is $34 trillion in debt. The debt is growing every day because our federal budget is not balanced. We are having to print money to keep our country funded, which is causing inflation! As the next United States Senator, I will not take a salary if I vote for an unbalanced budget,” said O’Donnell. “I want voters to know I am serious about making changes and getting them results. I am the only candidate willing to put my salary on the line as proof for the voters. And unlike other candidates, I am not a wealthy person who can forgo a salary.”


According to the U.S. Debt Clock, the federal government has $34.8 trillion in debt. Each taxpayer owes $266,000 to pay down the debt.  


“With this mounting debt, we as a nation are mortgaging our kids’ futures and causing inflation to soar,” said O’Donnell. “The federal government doesn’t have a revenue problem. It has a spending problem. That’s why I have proposed putting the federal government on a spending diet to balance the budget.”


O’Donnell’s Government Spending Diet:



  • Ending quasi-government paid lobbying

  • Instituting a balanced budget amendment

  • Dismantle the Department of Education and send the money back to the states for classrooms

  • Limiting government spending to the rate of inflation

  • Hiring freeze for all non-essential federal employees

  • No new entitlements

  • No more bailouts

  • No more money for Ukraine

  • Reducing the number of federally owned vacant properties


“These are the first nine ideas I would institute for controlling federal spending,” said O’Donnell. “Semi-government agencies such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should not be spending millions of dollars to lobby Congress. That’s crazy.”



“A balanced budget amendment would prevent Congress from increasing the national debt. Congress would have to submit a balanced budget to the President to sign. Forty-nine states have some form of balanced budget requirement. If states can live on a balanced budget, so can the federal government,” said O’Donnell. “There just needs to be the determination to do it.”
