Others ‘need it,’ too
There are some N.C. politicians who are deferring their paychecks during the government shutdown. Our beloved Renee Ellmers is still accepting her paycheck because, as she puts it, “she needs it.” Sorry, folks, but to my knowledge Ellmers’ husband is a surgeon.
In my 61 years, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a surgeon or a surgeon’s spouse in need of money. One of my best friends is a heating and air technician, and his wife works for the federal government. She is sitting home and not getting a paycheck. That is a family who “needs it,” not a family with the wealth that the Ellmerses have acquired in their lifetime.
Election time is coming, that’s all I have to say.
