Just a friendly little reminder to Congress, that our budgetless government is running on “continuing resolutions” including a whole bunch of spending on agancies and programs whose legislative authorization has expired already as well as a whole bunch whose authorizaion is about to expire in September. Almost a trillion dollars in spending that is still being spent, much of it now without any legal authority.
Some of it may be constitutionally valid. A lot of stuff on the list is just crazy. Some of it is for stuff like block grants to promote energy efficieny. Caulkers. $2 billion worth. That’s a lot of caulk. Not sure which article or section of the Constitution had the government involved with caulking. Plus as soon as the caulk is applied it stops being “general welfare” and becomes specific welfare, benefiting the caulkee.
