#1 Maybe if the budget isn't balanced, the organs of the senators and congresscritters should be sold til it is.

#2 Fire Senators, that'll do it, and Quickly.

I'm remembering Senator Phogbound (Of Dogpatch fame)

#3 Maybe if the budget isn't balanced, the organs of the senators and congresscritters should be sold til it is.

If you can backdate it to the Congresscritters who actually got to write a budget back in 2008 maybe so. At the moment Choomster is the one who helped strip Congress of its budgetary authority by saying "continuing resolution or complete shutdown." There's a lot about Congress I don't like but let's put blame where it belongs.

#4 Should the Congress balance the budget this year, the national economy will promptly collapse. Let us choose wisely.

#5 Nobody in executive and legislative branches gets paid until a budget is passed. No back pay when they finally pass the budget either. Every cent over and beyond a balanced budget is taken out of executive and legislative paychecks (and campaign funds) first before we deficit spend.

Problems would be fixed pretty damn quick.

#6 Silentbrick,etc.--As of today, we still have the means to harvest human organs, but unlike the Chinese leadership, we don't have the will.
