Nay. If a budget can't be passed, I suggest a government shutdown until one can be passed.

Lol that would be realistic, but how would vc have a government shutdown.

How would we have a budget in the first place? It's not like we actually take care of veterans, etc. It would basically be an announcement that the government has shut down, and all but the most crucial federal employees have been laid off.

Section 1: The following dates of each year is the due date of the president's budget.

Section 2: February 2nd, May 2nd, August 2nd, and November 2nd.

Section 3: The president can resubmit a budget 3 times until 2 weeks go by after the first budget was proposed then it fails.

Section 4: If the president cannot get congress to agree on a budget, then the last budget passed will continue.

Section 5: If a budget hasn't passed in Virtual Congress before then the real federal government budget will be the VC budget.
