Congressman Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement following his vote for H.R. 325, the No Budget No Pay Act.
"Today, I voted for H.R. 325, the No Budget No Pay Act of 2013. Before there is any long-term debt limit increase, a budget should be passed which controls the out of control spending in Washington, and allows for a broader debate about how to tackle the important issues facing America. House Republicans passed a budget in the past and we will do it again. With the right reforms put in place, the goal is to pass a budget balanced within a decade. This legislation obligates the Senate to finally join the House in confronting the government spending problem which will help create more jobs for hardworking American families."
