4. We Really Need Budget Reform

There are no repercussions for voting no on any Federal budget. You can vote no, still receive your state/district's allotment and then crow to you constituents on how much government money you secured for them.

I'd like to see states and districts get a percentage lopped off their government allotment when their Senator or Representative votes no on a budget. Could make them more reasonable at the negotiating table when their vote actually impacts their constituents.
