Representative Derek Kilmer released the following statement on the passage of the "No Budget, No Pay Act" that would suspend the debt limit for three months and would withhold congressional pay until a comprehensive budget is passed by Congress:

"I believe America should pay its bills even if they were racked up before I came to DC. This plan prevents the immediate threat of default that could cause harm to our nation's economy. Hopefully, this is the first step toward a real bipartisan effort to forge a balanced solution to our long-term fiscal challenges. This plan also forces Congress to live by the same principle that all folks in our region live by: if you don't do your job, you shouldn't be paid. I'm supporting this bill today because I've always said I'll do what's right for the families and employers of our region, regardless of whether it's a Democratic or Republican idea."
