My first choice is term limits, mind you, but this doesn’t suck.
The bill passed by the House today would withhold Congressional pay for members of the House and/or Senate should either chamber fail to adopt a budget resolution by April 15. Congress has not adopted a budget in more than 1,300 days.
This has been percolating here and there, but it seems to have passed a hurdle I thought insurmountable?
Okay, it IS hard to picture the Pampered Princes (and Princesses) on the Potomac actually abiding by this, let alone passing it into law, but it is fun to consider.
Compared to many of the things Congress will be asked to deal with during the next four years THIS is worthy of note. Imagine Congress voting to nullify an executive action concerning firearms? Tongue firmly in cheek here.
I can dream can’t I?
