But hey we can never cut military spending. What I find remarkable though is that despite all the claims about waste in Medicare or S.S. we rarely if ever get reports of widespread abuse and waste. In the military we get some new story at least once a month, but often much more frequently.
Funding government one bill at a time is not only the way we were set up to do things - it's also good governance. I'm not saying that Republicans are doing it because it's good governance, but by accident they appear to have ended up there. Giant must-pass last-minute omnibus bills that anyone can hang anything on is a process of crises governance, and crises governance is typically bad governance.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
