This just shows that congressmen can work and hash things out with a POTUS when they want to. They don't have to be a bunch of bullying brats like they were with Clinton during his 2nd term, nor do they have to be a yes-men to a diaper-stinking Caligula hoser and loser.

Here is why Continuing Resolutions are a problem. Under the budget rules dating to the 1920s Federal agencies may only spend money the way Congress appropriates it. So you have a project that is nearing completion and your agency wants to move on to the next program. But under a CR they cannot. They have to keep spending money on the program that is finishing up and cannot legally start the new program. But that original program is done so what do you spend the money on? This hurts the military hugely. If you are working of annual procurement contracts for something that is in series production it is maybe not such a big deal, but if for example you are completing development on something which requires RDTE Funds and are ready to move into production, you can't. Instead you have to keep spending RDTE funds but you cannot legally produce hardware for operational use with RDTE funds. Another example, your whatever it is has reached the end of its service life and is going to be replaced by something else that is newer and better. But because you are on a CR you have to put off buying newer and better and keep spending on the old tired system that is on its last legs, something like AV-8B Harriers just to use one example. CRs are just a real problem.

I’m glad you agree he’s a pimple.

I also said, Adamantium, you left that critical part out. Don't be sneaky now.

Another can kicked down the road. It's up to Biden to take executive action, remain in Mexico (and other countries), stop catch and release etc.

Why didn't Trump do that, if this was something that could be done?

US voters NOT happy with illegal crime and pressure on public services, Biden's in deep Dodoo!

Huh? Biden is 11 million votes ahead.

Otherwise, the House will keep kicking cans, kind of like Trump's legal delay tactics...tick tock.

You mean just like all the other comic book heroes. All fantasy.

In gross profit sales, not fantasy.

'Short-term" is what describes Mike Johnson's speakership given how many in his own Kook Squad want to knife him if he makes progress on anything...

And "short term" will describe the Repub majority after Nov...

"Short term" however won't be used to describe any of Trump's convictions and prison sentences...

One of these days, the clown show in the House will manage to get the EPA, the NEA, and the Department of Education in a separate funding bill. That's probably what they are gunning for and should be resisted.

Maybe…

Speaker Johnson is like a big, ugly pimple begging to be popped.

That's great. Now approve the ukraine aid, short stack.

Nope, don’t approve it.

Pretty shameful way the GOP leads. No long term vision or conviction, just funding the government for weeks at a time.
