Congressman Mike Rogers made the following remarks today in response to the passage of H.R. 325, the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013.
"The people of East Alabama know what it is like to live on a budget and so should Congress. Our nation's deeply troubling debt and spending crisis is too serious to pass it to our children and grandchildren. The very least Congress can do is pass a budget. If on April 15th the Senate has not come up with a budget, as they have refused to do for four years, then they won't be paid until they pass one.
"House Republicans are leading by putting forward common sense solutions to help cut out of control spending and responsibly manage America's finances."
