Today the House passed No Budget, No Pay legislation with bi-partisan support. The bill will require the House and Senate each to pass a budget, and Member pay will be withheld if they fail.
The principle is simple: no budget, no pay.
It’s time for the Senate to act. It has been almost four years since the Democratic-controlled Senate passed a budget, while our national debt has skyrocketed by over $5 trillion.
Watch our new video “Earning It” – about Senate Democrats failure to do their jobs and pass a budget: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zYgZdvhqymE
Help us keep the pressure on the Senate to follow the law and pass a budget. Forward this email, share this video on Facebook and Twitter. American taxpayers deserve better and we must hold them accountable to do their jobs.
