Press: No Budget, Then No Pay

OK, Republicans. You want Congress to adopt a budget and avoid yet another fiscal cliff-hanger with potentially catastrophic consequences, right? And same with you, Democrats and Independents. Of course, you're all on board. Then here's something maybe we can all agree on: No Budget, No Pay. No kidding. No Budget, No Pay would dock every member of Congress if the Senate fails to pass a budget on time. House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor recently offered their support to the concept, which was actually the brainchild of the nonpartisan organization No Labels more than a year ago/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

Question: What do you think of the No Budget, No Pay concept?
