Nancy Fail: No Budget

Well, the old broad can't accommodate Chiquita Khrushchev, so in the great tradition furthered by Paul Ryan (a fellow-traveler, after all) there will be no House-proposed Federal budget.

But some good has been proposed.  It's going nowhere, of course, but....

...Many of the freshman lawmakers, such as Rep. Cindy Axne (D., Iowa), cosponsored a bill that would raise the stakes for failing to come together on a budget.
"Our legislation says if lawmakers can't agree on a budget, lawmakers don't get paid," Axne said of her Shutdown to End All Shutdowns Act. "It's time to stop punishing everyday Iowans for Washington dysfunction."...
It should go the next step:  Federal prison housing until the budget is written, and while we're at it, a 20% reduction in pension for every month the budget is past-due.

We can hope, ain'a??
