Skip to comments.#NoBudgetNoPay: With Debt Undermining Our Economy, a Budget Should Be Passed that Cuts Spending

If you think Members of Congress should have to pass a budget before they get paid, watch and share the (weekly Republican address) (with Rep. James Lankford) (R-OK).
To give Congress time to pass a budget, the House of Representatives will vote this week on a temporary three-month debt limit increase. But if the House or Senate fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid. Here are some facts to remember:

Democrats don't pass a budget for three years...UNCONSTITUTIONAL...Not News
Republicans haven't passed a budget in three years...UNCONSTITUTIONAL....NEWS!
“temporary three-month debt limit increase”
What temporary program started in Congress has ever stayed temporary? he gave the Demoncrats a free pass.
Way past time to insist.
So exactly when did you figure that out ya crybaby jackwagon?
The GOP is not going to cut spending either
I’ll try to act surprised when spending goes up.
Even the Obama Phone Lady has had enough of Obama
That's the sad truth that we need 'conservatives' to understand.
This is a desperate gimmick.
The RINO Repubs pre-emptively surrender with a tiny bit of face saving to cover their (yet again) retreat on issues that matter to the Repub Base.
And it is not a loss of pay...only a postponement.
With interest, with our luck.
Why not just say no cuts, no debt increase?
Sure be nice if the Repubs would support their Base even half as courageously as the Dems support theirs.
Our problem: weak friends, strong enemies.
“Why not just say no cuts, no debt increase?”
Saw Boehner and Cantor following Obama and Biden out after the coronation today, to go “do lunch” together. The Republican party has lost its soul.
