In this week’s address, Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee James Lankford (R-OK) calls on the Democratic-controlled Senate to join us in reining in wasteful spending and passing a budget. The Senate has gone 1,361 days without passing a budget, despite being legally required to do so each year. The president’s last budget received zero votes in the House and Senate, and the White House just announced that it will be late in submitting a budget–again.
Next week, the House will consider legislation which requires the Senate and House to pass a budget or Members’ own pay will be suspended. Small businesses and families have a budget. Shouldn’t our government? Share your thoughts on Twitter using #NoBudgetNoPay if you agree that Members of Congress should not be paid until we pass a budget.
