    Why is house approval on this a formality?

    Why was there an argument over disaster aid?

    That should be a given.

    Stupid tea party.

    It would be nice to shut this government down permanently and go back to the one that TJ and founders came up with.

    this one week at a time one month at a time bull crud, is hurting our nation in my opinion....we have a totally dysfunctional government. fund the year...then within the year, make some BIG cuts, that can affect future spending in a sound manner instead of this willy nilly stuff.

    if a business or Corporation were to handle their financials in this manner they would be penny stock in no time. (and yes, businesses DO BORROW a good deal of their money, as the gvt does.)

    this not knowing what tomorrow will bring and spending without the willingness to pay for it, is a disaster.....

    PAY FOR WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY SPENT, darnit!

    Then CUT THE HECK out of FUTURE spending through legislative reforms.
