    There's no way you can lay blame for government spending on the current GOP-controlled House. They've been trying for almost two years to reduce spending.
    LOL They only want to decrease spending they don't like. The House added billions to the defense budget that wasn't wanted or asked for plus a half billion $ "slush fund" with no stated purpose. The idea that Republicans want to cut spending goes against all the history to the contrary. It is almost comical.


    The extra half-billion dollars in the House billls “is money without stated purpose or direction,” said Mr. Wheeler, who spent three decades as a Capitol Hill staffer overseeing Pentagon budgets for both Republican and Democratic members of Congress.

    “That has slush fund written all over it,” he told The Times.

    Funding is still going on but the Congress is effectively shut down. The Executive and Judicial branches are left to take up the slack(ers)

    Not sure what enjoyment you have going back and forth with this poster. Better to just bang your head against the wall. I am sure he knows what he is saying is nonsense, just having some fun.

    Most of us are looking for the type of practices that will pull us out of this ditch. We've been sitting on the bottom of this thing for three years now. It's time for a change.

    Just 84,000 jobs, one third of which were temporary positions.

    Look deeper. The political culture ensures that the country is no longer self-correcting.
