COOPER TALKS ABOUT NO BUDGET, NO PAY
Congressman Jim Cooper: I think it's been said. This is one of the toughest Congressional reforms ever proposed. It will be difficult to pass, but not if we have a public outcry and uprising to force Congress to consider a measure like this. It's been done in other contexts. All it is, is pay for performance. As David Walker said, and I hope you were listening closely, if we were paid by performance today, we would owe the government money. So this is a good way to start.
