More than 100 people in Congress are donating their more than $174,000 dollar paychecks to charity during the government shutdown, but many will keep collecting.
And a comment by one from Nebraska is getting some heat with the media. Nebraska's Lee Terry says there is now way he's giving his up and that he's got a nice house to pay for and a kid in colleg. He says giving your paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That's just not going to fly."
