House GOP Support A ‘No Budget, No Pay’ Bill

From The Hill:

House Republicans getting behind ‘No Budget, No Pay’ legislation

January 22, 2013

Conservatives in the House are getting behind “No Budget, No Pay” legislation that calls for a short-term hike in the nation’s debt ceiling.

The bill is expected to attract bipartisan support in the House on Wednesday, which would be a triumph for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) after his fumbling of the fiscal-cliff debate.

But it remains to be seen how united the House GOP conference will be on the legislation, which would withhold members’ pay if a budget resolution fails to pass their respective chambers by April 15.

Such a "triumph." Does anyone actually believe the Democrat-controlled Senate would go along with this after they are refused to even discuss a budget for going on four years?

Early indications are that Republicans will be more far more unified than they were on the fiscal cliff…

The bill, which would increase the debt ceiling until May, is expected to pass the Senate.

This is just a fig leaf for the Republicans once more caving, and kicking the can down the road.

And it’s the taxpayers’ can that is getting kicked.
