Ever wonder why Congress does nothing? They all spend 6-8 hours a day raising cash. Pass the Stop Act & tell Congress to get back to work at:
Hello, this is Charles Benninghoff on this beautiful 25th day of April, 2016.
We are supporting House bill 4433 known as the “Stop Act” and we are calling on Congress to pass this act because when your Representative and Senators are on the clock at taxpayer expense, what they are actually doing will shock you:
They are actually spending their day working as telemarketers.
How is this possible?
Republican Congressman Dave Jolly from Florida told 60 Minutes that when he was first elected in 2014, on his very first day on the job, he was pulled aside by the Republican leadership team.
At the time that would have been House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
They told Congressman Jolly, “Your job as a new member of Congress is to raise $18,000 a day for the Republican party. Your first responsibility is to raise $18,000 a day.”
This is why Jolly wrote the “Stop Act.”
It is illegal for a Member of Congress to solicit campaign funds for themselves or for a committee from Capitol Hill. So how do they get away with this?
Every day your Member of Congress, if he or she is a Republican, walks over to the Republican National Committee offices on First Street in Washington, D.C.
If your Member of Congress is a Democrat, they walk over to the Democrat National Headquarters on Capitol Hill Street.
Both parties have telemarketing “call suites” set up and your Representative in Congress spends at least four hours of every work day in there making cold calls to beg for cash.
Another three hours of every work day is spent on other fundraising activities such as “meet and greets” and meals with wealthy lobbyists and donors.
According to Congressman Jolly, on average, every Representative and Senator spends seven hours of each day that Congress is in session fundraising and telemarketing, and they spend only two hours doing any actual legislative work.
Here is Congressman Jolly talking about his “Stop Act”....
If the Stop Act is passed it would automatically ban Members of Congress from working as telemarketers for the Republican and Democrat national committees.
They can still attend fundraising events but they would have to do that on their own time and not on YOUR dime!
This is why Social Security never gets fixed. This is why millions of Americans are still being thrown off their health insurance every year due to Obamacare. This is why our southern border is still wide open and Members of ISIL can walk in posing as refugees to kill Americans.
Representatives are paid an average salary of $174,000 a year and in exchange for that they are only doing about five weeks of actual work. The rest of their time is spent telemarketing to beg for cash on behalf of their national party slavemasters.
If you think a $250 toilet seat at the Pentagon is a ripoff, how about Members of Congress stealing $785 an hour, every hour, from the taxpayers?
Here is how the math on that works out. The House of Representatives is in session a little over 100 days this year.
If only two hours a day is spent on legislative work as Congressman Jolly says, that means Members of Congress are making about $870 an hour.
With a full-time job, to earn $174,000 for the year, Members of Congress would actually make about $85 an hour.
So… Members of Congress are actually stealing $785 an hour from the taxpayers for every hour that they work!
For sure, only the Lord knows what these guys and gals are doing when they’re back at the home office. If they won’t work when Congress is in session, it would stagger my mind to find they actually work when home.
Exodus Chapter 20 in verse 15 is one of the simplest Bible verses for anyone to understand:
“You shall not steal.”
But that is what the Members of Congress are doing to the American taxpayers. They’re taking a big salary at the expense of the taxpayers and instead of working for us, they are working seven hours a day for the political party bigwigs!
Here is how you can help.
The Members of Congress need to hear from you and they need to know that you are outraged about this!

From there you can send personalized messages to every Member of Congress and tell them to pass House bill 4433 known as the “Stop Act.”
We also provide the phone number to congressional offices so you can call your Representative and we hope you’ll do so. Embarrass them on the phone by asking them why they spend four hours a day on the clock working as telemarketers instead of doing what we sent them there to do!
