Kerry Bentivolio Not Looking GoodSubmitted by kallussed on Fri, 01/25/2013 - 20:39
First Congressman Kerry Bentivolio voted for speaker Boehner. Then he voted YES on the debt ceiling deal:
Now he's distancing himself from Ron Paul: "I'm really a Ronald Reagan Republican — I'm not really a Ron Paul person."
EDIT: He has a response on his Facebook page now.
TL;DR ...The “No Budget, No Pay” Act temporarily suspends the debt ceiling on non-discretionary spending for four months, but not discretionary spending ... I voted 'yes' on the “No Budget, No Pay” Act because it forces the Senate to lead and follow their constitutional duty. It says that the Senate will not receive their salary if they continue to refuse to not produce a budget ... No Budget No Pay returns the conversation from the debt ceiling to the budget, where it belongs...
