No Confidence in Congress

From Club for Growth post:

Senate Democrats want to hold a "no confidence" vote against Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez. If that happens, Senator Tom Coburn plans to offer an amendment, the subject of which he explained in a recent letter to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (received via email). Excerpt:
I am requesting that I be consulted before the Senate enters into any unanimous consent agreements regarding a vote on any resolution or other legislation expressing a lack of confidence in any federal official.

If such a resolution comes before the Senate, I plan to offer an amendment expressing no confidence in Congress’ ability to cut wasteful spending or balance the budget.
