I propose a Constitutional Amendment that would place all Senator’s, Representatives, President, Vice-President and Cabinet member’s salaries into escrow accounts to be released only when a budget is passed.

Good Idea; but how would it get past a bunch of...

...Senator’s, Representatives, President, Vice-President and Cabinet member’s?

I doubt they care about their salary. That is not the source of their wealth. And why escrow, why not just suspend their pay when there is no budget.

I would be carefull about what I wished for, since they could pass a budget that could be worse than obamacare just to get it passed.

Too bad the federal budget is not limited to the funds the states are willing to give them. Any shortfall in that budget would have to be paid by the members of congress from their personal wealth. Afterall, it’s their signature on the credit card. I doubt we would see any spending above the cash on hand. See how good and generous these guys are when it is THEIR money they are spending.

I know it’s absurd, but so are they.
