Heritage Action: No More Short-Term CRs

Yesterday, the President signed a two-week funding measure into law.  The measure would cut $4 billion in spending and gives the President and Senate Democrats until March 18th to either agree to the original House-passed measure or offer an alternative.

Heritage Action’s CEO Michael A. Needham made the following statement:

It is time for Senate Democrats to stop passing the buck and follow regular order by acting on H.R.1, including the full slate of cuts and policy riders.

If the President and Senate Democrats are genuine in their desire to fund the government, cut non-security spending and avoid a shutdown, H.R.1 should be their starting point.  Anything less and they will demonstrate a fundamentally unserious approach to our looming fiscal crisis.

Heritage Action will oppose additional short-term extensions.

    This administration had two years with total control as evidenced by the Stimulus Bill, Health Care Reform and Finance Reform, but did not pass a budget while they were doing those things. They have already had to exempt over 100 entities from health care requirements. It is obvious that a private company would go broke if they concentrated upon spending and ignored the budget. Our nation is no different except that the problems have been pushed down the road by printing presses and enabling nations buying our debt. Incompetent management must be fired or the entity will fail. I don’t believe that this many ?geniuses? are this collectively incompetent.

    I disagree. The house offered a bill reducing spending 61 billion. 4 billion every 2 weeks adds to
    104 billion. This also keeps alive how much OBUMO and the dems hate spending cuts. Also if this is last years bill all the better to show their stupidity for not passing their bill. I would let it go for the whole year. A disaster should never be wasted.
