The primary United States Constitutional responsibility for the House is the “power of the purse”. With this Constitutional power also brings responsibility and liability. Failure to provide and protect the Treasure of the Citizens of the United States imply abrogation of duty to the collective Citizens of the United States. Not to special interests nor advertising dollars that effectively "buy votes". Failure to reach a budget is abrogation of duty. Penalty? No benefits, nor salary, nor vacation, provided by the Citizens of the United States, if and until the duty to control and distribute the purse is reached by the time prescribed by the Constitution. This also implicates the duty to protect and defend the United States of America, and it's Constitution! Time for a one term limit?
