Nay. This would just make VC boring because some people would be pissed at the budget, block it, and ruin a lot of VC fun. This bill --> more partisanship

See below. This bill has pan-partisan support.

Support from across party lines for this bill doesn't mean much

It would cause people to have to work together. I urge you to switch your vote

This bill has the support of members across the political spectrum, including members of the administration such as CollinMatthew, CajunTrooper, and the treasurer Ranger13, the Conservative Party head Fank, and members of the National Front. Everyone should vote yea for a better, more realistic VC.

I think people are nervous about this because a group could force a shutdown, but that's how it is in the real congress so we should have it here too.

1) Remove Section 4 and Section 5 of the Amendment to Budget Act of 2017.

2) If the president cannot get congress to agree on a budget, then a government shutdown will occur.

3) During a budget shutdown, non-essential personnel will be furloughed, and non-essential agency activities and services will be curtailed.

4) During a budget shutdown, all functions on the VirtualCongress website shall be removed except the link to "propose legislation", and no legislation shall be submitted or posted for voting except budget bills.

5) If the President's first budget fails, Congressmen may submit their own budget proposals (as in the actual Congress).
