In the real world there are serious consequences for failing to meet a deadline. The Democrat-controlled Senate has failed to pass a budget in more than two years, which is the primary function for which they have been hired by the American people. It is time for the American people to demand that Congress do its job, and do it on time!
The bi-partisan No Budget, No Pay Act would bring serious accountability to members of Congress by cutting off their pay if they fail to meet their October budget deadline. The bill also ensures that Congress does not have the ability to retroactively award themselves pay lost for failing to perform their most basic constitutional function.
This simple bill is currently being considered in both bodies of Congress.
