The House on Wednesday passed the "No Budget, No Pay Act," a Republican bill that would effectively defuse the debt ceiling threat for several months.
The bill would let the Treasury Department borrow new money until mid-May. In exchange, the legislation would require lawmakers in both chambers of Congress to pass a budget resolution or have their pay withheld until they do.
Will they give the defense spending money to protect diplomats?
I think that violent video games and movies makes everything worse. It shows young adults, kids, and teens that killing and crime is alright. I agree with this teacher 100%, she is making a difference and an example everyone should follow.

I think violent games do effect the brains behavior.
I mean think about it some people want to do what is on the video games such as killing.
As if giving our military more money to blow on people tjat make damn big bucks out of public funds whose only need for existence is to advance corporate interest is more important than a nations populations peoples needs.
While the fate of the majority of nations people has continually sank and the politicos and those they represent all gain enormously by playing war games for over20 years the only debts being incurred are ours not theirsDarn right they raised the debt cieling for programs they want while taking it from programs the people need, and still borrowing to makeup the differences they need.
Withold their pay until they do their jobs?
In the private sector, this would be a given.
In the private sector, you wouldn't have a job.
Sounds like a good plan...they all (both parties) should have given up their pay in embarrasment long ago.

My point exactly! They've become complacent.
This is a step in the right direction...
In this day when bills are written between Presidents men and women with but few select Congress present; That are then crisis delivered at last hour so no one can read;
And now tell them sign or you won't get paid, and the minions all say amen.
When they who sign are over paid to sign or their check will go away, why not just give them rubber stamps and have the President and the clerk of the house sign.
When they make more under the table and sheets than their paychecks already why not.
What kind of nation have we become, when the slaves cheer as their masters become wealthier, while back in their slave quarters the roof isfalling on their ears?
Not really @ banasy, they still get paid.
