Cole Praises Passage of "No Budget, No Pay Act"

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 325--The No Budget, No Pay Act:

"The Senate's failure to pass a budget in nearly four years is disgraceful. House Republicans have voted repeatedly to cut spending, but progress in reducing the debt is impossible without cooperation from Senate Democrats.

"The "No Budget, No Pay Act" ensures that Senate Democrats will not be paid if they refuse to do their jobs. The legislation sets a schedule for an orderly budgeting process and prevents a repeat of the last-minute fiscal negotiations that harm the economy and jeopardize our credit rating

"The House has acted to prevent debt default and work toward balancing the budget in 10 years. It is now the Senate's responsibility to act by passing their first budget in four years."
