Walden proposes “No Budget, No Pay” Act

January 29, 2013

Congressman Greg Walden

U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) issued the following statement upon House passage of the “No Budget, No Pay” plan:

“In our part of Oregon, families sit down around their kitchen tables and figure out how to balance their budgets. It’s time for Washington, D.C. to do the same. If hardworking taxpayers don’t do their jobs, they don’t get paid. Congress needs to live by the same rules—no budget, no pay.

“While the House has passed a budget each of the last two years, the Senate has failed to do so in nearly four. The last time the Senate passed a budget—in 2009—the iPad hadn’t even been invented yet! Congress must write a responsible budget to get our fiscal house in order. Only then will we be able to create a good, strong American economy where people can get a job that pays the bills.”

The “No Budget, No Pay” plan withholds pay from members of the House and Senate if their chamber does not pass a budget by April 15. The measure also temporarily suspends the debt ceiling until May 18 to set up a broader debate about responsible spending.

Thank you for this new email alert, I will share it with others. Keep up the good work!

So very sorry, but I cannot send you any money. We are retired and having a hard time making ends meet. Everything has gone UP so much the past few years, it has changed our standard of living. We moved from Portland, because the cost of living was lower in So. Oregon. But we cannot afford any more taxes!
