Congressman Chuck Fleischmann Votes for No Budget, No Pay Act

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann voted for the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013. In exchange for a temporary debt ceiling increase, the bill will enact real fiscal restraints by requiring the House and Senate each to pass a budget. Member pay will be withheld if they fail.

"The principle here is pretty simple, if there's no budget then there's no pay. The House has passed responsible budgets each year I have been in Congress; however, it's been over 1,300 days since the Democrat controlled Senate produced a budget. This irresponsible pattern must end this year.

"Not having a budget wouldn't fly for hardworking Americans at home or at work, and it shouldn't be allowed in Congress. We cannot ever truly constrain spending if the Senate will not pass a budget. With the passage of this bill the Senate Democrats will finally be obligated to produce a path to get our fiscal house in order."
