No Confidence Vote

Speaking of sesquestration . . . . . 

What would you think if an Admendment was proposed that would allow a vote of no confidence (in the sitting Congress) to be called under certain conditions?  What sort of conditions would justify calling a vote of no confidence, in your opinion?  What would happen if the majority of voters replied "no confidence in the sitting Congress?"

A little more like the British system.

I sometimes think that without the no-confidence option, our congressmen don't feel much sense of accountibility once they get elected.

There's always the "that's what elections are for" arguement but in a situation like the budget right now, maybe knowing that no confidence and an new general election if they don't get things sorted could light a fire under a Congress locked in party politics.  

Just finished watching the Netflix remake of House of Cards and honestly, even a no confidence option doesn't give me much hope of having a real voice in national politics.  :-(
