Roskam on Passage of No Budget, No Pay

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 325, the No Budget, No Pay Act:

"Today, the House of Representatives passed the No Budget, No Pay Act and sent an unequivocal message to the Democrat-controlled Senate: the time for shirking your basic responsibilities is over. It is astounding that the last time the United States Senate passed a budget was the day Rod Blagojevich got indicted. For 1,365 days, half of Congress has been silent on the coming debt crisis.

"The time is now to bring both parties and both chambers to the table and lay out our long term debt and deficit plans. For two years, the House of Representatives has put forward budgets to avert the coming fiscal crisis and put America back on a path to prosperity. At a staggering $16.4 trillion in debt and counting, Washington must meet the challenge head-on and pass a budget out of both chambers."
