Republican Senator Says ‘No Budget, No Recess’

Sen. Joni Ernst is tired of the government shutdown and is proposing legislation to see that the work necessary to get it running again gets done.

The suggested legislation would require lawmakers to remain in Washington and convene twice each day until a resolution is reached on the national budget and re-opening the government.

Ernst appeared on “Fox & Friends” to elaborate on her proposal.

“It is “No budget, No recess” and it would force members of Congress to stay in DC until we have a budget done and until we have those appropriations bills done… There would be quorum calls requiring our members to be on the floor twice a day until we work through the impasse,” she said.

Her host accused her of “trying to bring common sense to the process.”
