Just got an email (from Repubs):
Moments ago, the House took a stand: if the Senate doesn’t pass a budget, then Members of Congress won’t get paid.Have not read the bill so don't know all the crap in there, but want to discuss the concept.
It’s simple: No Budget, No Pay.
The Repubs want to say "no budget, no pay" - is this for both houses or only the Senate?
The sponsor claims:
members of the U.S. Senate and House do not get paid until they pass a budget.If for both houses, I say - bring it on. I can't see the people like Doug Lamborn (CO - CD5) going without a pay check. So, my thought is the house republicans blink first. Once again, we get the Blazing Saddles scenario - I think this is a loser for the Rs.
