Texas Congress members on their pay during the shutdown

Ted Cruz
John Cornyn
Kenny Marchant
Roger Williams
Joe Barton
Michael Burgess
Marc Veasey
Kay Granger

Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas (R)

Ted Cruz
...I intend to donate my salary to charity for each day the government is shut down. Elected leaders should not be treated better than the American people, which is precisely why hardworking Americans deserve the same Obamacare exception that President Obama has already granted members of Congress.
Sen. Ted Cruz

Sen. John Cornyn, Texas (R)

John Cornyn
Sen. Cornyn will not be paid during the federal shutdown. He donates to charity and does not believe a government shutdown should necessitate charitable contributions, compassion for your fellow man should.
Cornyn spokeswoman Megan Mitchell

Rep. Kenny Marchant, Coppell (R)

Kenny Marchant
Congressman Marchant will not take his pay for the duration of the shutdown and instead donate it to local charities. For every day the government is shut down, he will donate his salary to a different charity in his congressional district.
Spokesman James Williams

Rep. Roger Williams, Austin (R)

Roger Willaims
In a letter to the House Chief Administrative Officer, Rep. Roger Williams wrote that in the event of a government shutdown, “please withhold my pay.”

Rep. Joe Barton, Ennis (R)

Joe Barton
[Rep. Joe Barton] supports charitable organizations in and around the 6th District (including Meals on Wheels, the Boys and Girls Club and Hope Clinic) both personally and financially through the Joe Barton Family Foundation. He doesn’t think those efforts should be driven by political appearances.
Sean Brown, Barton’s spokesman

Rep. Michael Burgess, Lewisville (R)

Michael Burgess
We are paid at the end of the month. If we’re into this 30 days, there’s a lot more to worry about. I don’t live in a two-income household.
Rep. Michael Burgess

Rep. Marc Veasey, Fort Worth (D)

Marc Veasey
As a freshman member of Congress, I am disheartened by this Republican shutdown, but I will not make this tragedy worse by denying my constituents access to their government. My offices are open and will remain open.
Rep. Marc Veasey

Rep. Kay Granger, Fort Worth (R)

Kay Granger
The congresswoman is requesting that her pay be withheld during the government shutdown.
