Any reasonable budget appropriates according to necessary priorities. These CRs are a total cop-out. Instead of evaluating excessive funding and cutting unnecessary expense, they just keep upping the ante as if deficit spending needs no controls. The democrats and republicans need to quit playing chicken to see how much they can spend before our country is bankrupt. A silver dollar used to be the same value as a paper dollar, but our government has taken on so much debt that it takes 20 paper dollars to buy one real dollar. Our dollars have been devalued by inflation to be worth about 5 cents. When is someone going to call a halt to this massive debt and spending what we don't have? I would be in jail if I misappropriated public funds the way our un-representative congress people do.
