Sign Jesse Ventura's petition to freeze pay for Congress during shutdown

Ventura recently made the suggestion to TMZ in a video interview, and now a petition to that effect has gained over 300,000 signatures.
"For every day the government is shut down, it should be that we don't have to pay income tax that day because they're not working," Ventura says in the TMZ video. "They should all be voted out of their office for not doing their jobs ... and vote in everybody BUT Democrats or Republicans because this is what you end up with."
MoveOn picked up the idea and launched a petition, which you can sign here:
I demand that members of Congress NOT get paid during a self-inflicted government shutdown. It is morally reprehensible that hardworking federal employees will stop receiving the paychecks they need to feed their families and pay their mortgages, while Congress still gets paid for refusing to do the job they were elected to do.Will you sign it?
