There is another “continuing resolution” scam by the Washington politicians that will play out this week.
Year after year Congress pushes the budget debate until the end of the year, only to pass a bill that dramatically increases overall spending, leading to Congress spending a total of $174 billion over the budget caps since 2013.
This week’s bill will likely continue that trend with emergency spending measures and various funding gimmicks.
On top of it all, the bill will likely allow Planned Parenthood to receive even more of taxpayers' hard-earned money.
Never miss a local story.
Big government cronies are again using this budget battle as a chance to help revitalize the Export-Import Bank. Currently, the Bank is in a holding pattern because they lack the proper number of voting members to approve deals over $10 million.
A new rider could revoke the quorum requirement and undermine the very essence of checks and balances.
The Senate’s 10-week continuing resolution would move the debate into December, (lame duck session), after many members of Congress have been voted out of office and are no longer accountable to the people.
This means that President Obama can work with unaccountable lawmakers to pass big government, big business priorities over the objections of the American people.
I urge all taxpayers to call and/or write their representative and senators to object to this scam.
