Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) offered the following statement after voting yes on House Resolution 325, commonly known as the "No Budget, No Pay Act."
"House Republicans offered our colleagues across the aisle a simple but powerful proposition today: do your job, or lose your pay. This important step brings a much-needed dose of common sense to a discussion that has lacked sound reasoning for far too long. There's no other way to explain the Senate Democrats failure to pass a budget for four years and counting.
Everyone knows our current spending addiction is damaging our economy today, and putting the American Dream at risk for our children and grandchildren. It's time to live within our means and chart a path toward a brighter and more sustainable future for all Americans. Today's vote shows the House GOP is ready and willing to supply the leadership our nation needs."
