People's Court - Conservative Cartoon
From Chip Bok
The 1974 Budget Act requires both houses to
pass a budget every year
. The senate is four years in arrears.
House Republicans hatched a plan on Friday
to raise the debt ceiling, but only if each chamber passes a budget. If senators don’t pass a budget, they don’t get paid.
This sounds suspiciously similar to
Charles Krauthammer’s Friday pitch in his Washington Post
column, though he didn’t mention the pay part.
Kimberley Strassel, in the WSJ
, details how Harry Reid’s rope-a-dope tactics “hide the party’s spending ambitions” and “casts the Republicans as the cause of every legislative crises”.
