Despite the excellent budget put forward by President Trump last year, federal spending continues to flow in a business-as-usual manner — much to the frustration of taxpayers. The Republican Congress has continued the unfortunate trend of passing numerous, short-term continuing resolutions (CRs) to fund the government (albeit, in part due to the challenge of achieving 60 votes in the Senate). These continuing resolutions do little to serve the interest of taxpayers nor our military which desires a stable and predictable allocation of funds for the future.
The most recent continuing resolution, passed by Congress yesterday, will fund the government for a mere three weeks. The resolution may have served its purpose as a “cease fire” during a time of immense partisan bickering, but it also kicks the can down the road on the serious effort that is needed to curb Washington, D.C.’s appetite for spending.
