Netanyahu’s Speech — These Congressmen Did Not Show Up to Work Today — Will Anything Happen to Them?

If I were to not show up to work at my job, no matter how much I might protest what is going on there (and believe me, I doth protest much), there would probably be some sort of repercussion. I might be suspended, or even terminated. These men did not show up to their job on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, and everyone in the world (all almost 8 billion of you) knows it. Their salaries are paid by Americans who contribute taxes to the government (albeit not voluntarily).
Do you think they will be punished?
Do you think anything will happen to them?

Did you go to work today?
