    Starting in 2016, he says, the 12 government appropriations bills will be considered one at a time. And House conservatives say they’ll watch closely to make sure the speaker follows through.



    That should be a novel approach. Seems all they've been able to pass up to now are massive Omnibus bills where lawmakers can whine how they had no other choice but t vote for it to keep government from shutting down. Now, they'll have to vote for bills where they can be held accountable.



    Can he pull it off? And, if he does, what will happen in the Senate?

    What a novel approach...common sense.
    from the OP's link:
    I have serious doubts that routine will be followed. Reid or McConnell will screw it up.

    What will be interesting is that he does not a have a GOP majority for a bill he wants, will he open it for a general vote?

    The indications seem to be, yes.

    Why change what works? Cutting infrastructure, science, r&d and education is just retarded. I could see repealing some of the tax breaks and idiocy.

    The normal path of the Federal Budget hasn't been done for a long time.........including both parties over time.................They always just give a one size fits all bill..........omnibus.........................and black mail each other until it's done.

    Once the back of the political far right and the TP disease in Congress is broken, we can fix the system. We are only a year away from sweeping out those who hate America and began its healing without the hard right reactionaries.
