    Chairman Ryan Statement on the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013 | Budget.House.Gov
    I guess if we hit sequester or continuing resolution we are also going to get hit with a government shut down. Checks just won't go out. That includes social security.

    Pretty straight forward.

    It is called 'triangulation.'

    Obama got his tax increases on the dirty rich. Obama got his 'clean' debt ceiling increase.

    He 'won' on his issues. Now the Democrats must do something.

    Good

    No it doesn't. That's just fearmongering propaganda.

    It doesn't matter anyway because the Republicans will not hold to their word. They don't have the balls to not raise the debt ceiling. They're just grandstanding.

    I should better clarify that the OP. If the SENATE passes a budget then another raise in the debt ceiling can be considered. So that does not require a full budget to the President by April 15th. There are other consequences though.

    It will become a question of priorities it depends where Social Security ends up on the list of to-be-paid. Other people might cause a lot more pain to the government that a bunch of angry seniors.

    Having no budget for all these years just shows how absolutely broken Washington is.

    Frankly the morons on the Hill and in the WH don't deserve a dime of taxpayers money.

    Obama and the Democrats won the 2012 Election, forced the Republicans "to blink" over the "fiscal cliff" and according to the polls has the support of the majority of Americans!

    Which of those 3 doesn't Ryan understand?

    If Paul Ryan wants to make Republican attempts to undermine the Obama/Democratic authority to govern the country, let that be the basis for their 2014 campaign - by that time "opposition/gridlock fatigue" will have reached its peak!

    The President agreed to have a budget on time and the House Republican leadership passed a debt ceiling increase. Time for both houses of Congress to make the next step. We really don't have time for this party bullshit.

    By 'undermine authority', you are stating Obama and Reid should have full sway to break the laws on the Nation and not submit / not pass budget resolutions?
