Fine Senators and Congressmen for not reaching budgets

If a budget is not reached, fine Senators and Congressmen for each day they have not reached a budget agreement. They have been elected to do a job and if they do not do it, they need to be fined until they do. If they have some stake in the game, they will do the work of the tax payer as they were elected to do. Right now there is no accountability, and if there were, they would not waste any time, and we could even incentivize them to do it early by giving them a bonus for early submission.
