O’Donnell Says No Pay for Congress

Need to Do Their Jobs to Earn The Salary


Saint Joseph, MI—Today, following up on her promise not to take a salary if she votes for an unbalanced federal budget, Dr. Sherry O’Donnell, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, announced that she will file legislation to withhold congressional salaries if members don’t pass a balanced budget, vote to raise the budget, and continue to send foreign aid to Ukraine.


“It is time to get serious about balancing the federal budget and stopping the reckless spending. Withholding the salary of Senators and Congressional members will help motivate them to do their jobs. Present and future taxpayers are depending on them to get the federal debt under control,” said O’Donnell.


“Having operated a clinic for over 20 years, I know we have to intake more money than we spend to keep our doors open. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, D.C. forgot how to budget. As the next Senator, I am going to get the job done. This will not be popular, but our country is in financial trouble. The sooner we deal with the problem, the better it will be. As a physician, I know preventive medicine works best,” said O’Donnell.


“When the Ukraine war began, I went to provide medical help. However, I don’t believe that the Ukraine vs. Russia war is worth American lives or tax dollars. It is time to cut off the aid. That’s why it is part of my proposal,” said O’Donnell.


Monday, O’Donnell said she would 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.”
