NRSC targets Senate Democrats on 'No Budget, No Pay' act

“Every Louisiana family and small business owner understands you can’t spend money that you don’t have, but that message has been lost on Senator Landrieu over the last 17 years she’s been in Washington,” reads the email sent out targeting Sen. Mary Landrieu (La.).

“Senator Landrieu and her fellow Democrats have shirked their most basic responsibilities and maxed out the government credit card to the tune of trillions and trillions in new debt.”

Walsh adds that the need for the "No Budget, No Pay" measure, just passed by the House and likely to breeze through the Senate, should have political ramifications for Landrieu in 2014.

“It’s regrettable that it takes an act of Congress to force Senator Landrieu to simply do her job, but the voters of Louisiana have an opportunity to send her an even stronger message in next year’s election," he said.

The same release also went out to the states of Sens. Mark Udall (Colo.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Max Baucus (Mont.), Tim Johnson (S.D.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Al Franken (Minn.) and Tom Harkin (Iowa).

The National Republican Congressional Committee has also been launching attacks based on the measure, targeting Democrats who voted against it as out of touch with the realities of Washington spending.
