No Budget, No Pay
About the Problem
Federal debt held by the public will exceed 100% of GDP by 2039. And legislators are not being held responsible for failing to pass a budget.
About the Policy
If the congressional appropriations (spending) process is not completed by the start of a new federal fiscal year, congressional pay ceases as of October 1, and isn’t restored until appropriations are completed.
Polling data derived from three national surveys conducted by Cohen Research Group in February and March 2016. Each survey had a sample size of at least 1,000 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.1%
