JustinN: WHy are we still accepting short term spending and omnibus appropriation bills / CRs. Time for Congress to pass timely budgets and appropriate money using the 12 spedning bills spelled out in the Budget Control Act. Congress needs to do its job. Just because money was appropriated last year does not mean it should be appropriated again. That is the problems with these continuing resolutions (CRs) It just spends what was spent last year + some with no analysis of if what we spent last year should be spent again.
