Sen. Ted Cruz plans to donate his salary to charity for each day Harry Reid forces a government shutdown. “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,” he said in a statement.

With just a few hours left on the clock, a government shutdown is looking all but certain. Cruz discussed on the Kudlow Report tonight how Reid’s refusal to compromise has brought the country to this point, and why he plans to donate his salary for each day of a shutdown.
