Newsletter - No Pay for Congress Unless America's Bills Are Paid


Location: Unknown

Dear Friend:

This week I introduced the Pay Your Bills or Lose Your Pay Act of 2013, which would prevent Members of Congress from being paid if they fail to raise the debt ceiling.

America is not a deadbeat nation. It is an American value to pay our bills. If Members of Congress refuse to honor that responsibility and do our jobs, we should not be paid our salaries. My legislation would help prevent a catastrophic default -- a self-inflicted wound that would harm our economy and our country.
