Sen. Ted Cruz to donate salary to charity if Democrats shut down government

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, announced today he will donate his Senate salary to charity salary to charity for each day Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid forces a government shutdown.

From Cruz's website:
"Harry Reid should not force a government shutdown. I hope that Reid stops refusing to negotiate and works with the House to avoid a government shutdown, and, at the same time, prevent the enormous harms that Obamacare is inflicting on the American people.
"If, however, Harry Reid forces a government shutdown, 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."
