Wanna bet Democrats all of a sudden will be all over passing a budget after 3 years of not doing so?
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the following statement about the need to pass a budget that reduces spending:
“The President’s plan to simply borrow more money without any reform in Washington puts us all at risk.
“The first step to fixing this problem is to pass a budget that reduces spending. The House has done so, and will again. The Democratic Senate has not passed a budget in almost four years, which is unfair to hardworking taxpayers who expect more from their representatives. That ends this year.
“We must pay our bills and responsibly budget for our future. Next week, we will authorize a three month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget. Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job. No budget, no pay.
