How creative! For New York lawmakers, no budget means no pay. Sacramento faces the same issues, but our elected officials in Sacramento continue to get paid when there is no budget. Let us NOT forget that it’s these people that got us in this mess, and are always coming up with no real solution to it (They tend to like the smoke and mirror approach). So let’s follow New York’s lead and stop paying them.
Some will say that it wouldn’t be fair and that, like in the article, some of the lawmakers would have financial difficulties and some could probably lose their homes. Sounds like what many in this state are going thru because of Sacramento’s inability to solve the budget crisis.
So, let’s get this make into law and if our current group of Sacramento politicians can’t live with it, well, they always have the option of not running for reelection.
Oh, btw, my suggestion for a “real” solution to the constant budget crisis can be found here:
