Making a budget for our country is one of Congress' most important jobs. But it hasn't passed a full budget or required spending bills on time since 1995.
One solution to that problem is the No Budget, No Pay bill proposed by No Labels (it's one of 12 common-sense ideas for making Congress work). Under this proposal, if Congress doesn't pass a budget on time, lawmakers don't get their paychecks.
You don't get paid unless you do your job. Why should Congress? If your member of Congress has signed on to No Budget, No Pay, thank them and congratulate them.
