    No pay for congress until they pass a budget!

    Now this is something I think we can all get behind! Call, email, or write your congressman!

    Third paragraph: The House will also seek to prevent members of Congress from being paid if the two chambers do not pass a budget resolution.

    Now if we could just force them to participate in Social Security & Obama Care. Why should they give a damn about the pounding we're taking? They opted-out for better-funded, better-run programs...years ago.

    Where have you been? That is not a norm by any means, unfortunately.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Whenever an assertion is prefaced with "I think we can all agree", or something similar, something ludicrous generally follows. What if they pass a twenty trillion dollar budget, just so they get paid?

    Unfortunately the current President seems to adhere to the "Don't do your job? I'll increase your pay via executive order!" philosophy.
