And everyone would be so unhappy about this.

Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) on Tuesday released a bill that would cut off pay to federal officials such as Attorney General Eric Holder who have been held in contempt of Congress.
The release of the measure comes a week after the House Oversight Committee approved contempt charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner for her refusal to testify about the agency’s targeting of conservative nonprofits applying for tax-exempt status. A full House vote is expected in the coming weeks.
“The American people should not be footing the bill for federal employees who stonewall Congress or rewarding government officials’ bad behavior. If the average American failed to do his or her job, he or she would hardly be rewarded,” Farenthold said.
