We have all of this government because of BOTH parties. But the Repubs control the House from whence are distributed out all the tax dollars. All of this government continues because the REPUBS have not shut off the spigot. Forget passing a budget. All that Herr Reid has to do is ignore that and then they have no alternative except “emergency measures” to “keep the government running” I recall when Clinton went to the wall with that and the government “shut down”. Didn’t effect most Americans at all. AT ALL! Because they stopped all of the “non-essential” operations. All of those non-essential non-enumerated activites need to be stopped anyway. Those are responsibilities that belonged to the states , if the people of the state choose to tolerate it.
Instead of trying to get a compromise on a budget (which will never happen), instead of tacitly going along with the lib/progs while protesting mightily as though there were no choice, the Repubs could piecemeal a budget and pass bills to fund individual agancies AT THEIR CURRENT LEVEL OF SPENDING. And then Herr Reid would have to pass those or else blatently have the responsibilty. The House couldd even NOT fund some of the federal agancies that that are unconstitutional. Or redundant. Or useless. Even if the profligate federal agencies were funded with zero increase at their current level of excess, it would be an improvement over the current built-in “zero-based budgeting”, which is a fancy name for automatic increases without Congress having to own up to causing it. And then attrition could be added in so that there was no funding for new personel and the the agencies automatically became smaller until they were gone and the people reassigned.
Wonder how how many czars would show up to work if they suddenly had their paycheck cut off. Even if Soros were to step in and start having to fund them himself to try to rescue his plan of undermining of our government, I don’t think that would last very long. Even a multi-billioinaire isn’t going to be able to self-fund all his own henchman in our government very long on his own.
We have the current continuation of the spending because of the REPUBS. Every bit of our money that is being wasted originates per their control. Forget the crocidile tears. They are our current major problem. They are the pusher for the lib/prog addicts.
