It will be impossible to get any control of the excessive spending by the Congress until we get rid of the insane nonsense of current services base line budgeting. The idea that last years spending constitutes a floor for this years spending plus an automatic annual increase is a politicians wet dream. Every year they get more to spend without having to vote for it, it's all built into the system. For public consumption they engage in phony debates over slight decreases in the rate of spending increase but overall the spending always goes up.

yep.... forget about base line budgeting...... the size of Government, and government spending needs to be CUT, in all areas..... entire Departments of wasteful, regulation-producing, worthless Federal Bureaucracies need to disappear. The current crew in Congress- both parties- refuse to recognize that fact, or do anything about it. They are determined to ride the Titanic into the iceberg, full speed.

Welcome to Thunder Dome.

Well, at least sequestration was supposed to bring about a post-apocalyptic world until President Obama realized Republicans weren’t going to capitulate to his will (again) and raise taxes (again) to replace the sequester he birthed in 2011.

There was a distinct change in tone from the White House this week on what sequestration would mean. In little more than a week we went from roving bands of teacherless children wandering darkened streets filled with uninspected rancid meat, illegal aliens and pre-convicted felons released because of lack of funds setting fires there aren’t enough firefighters to extinguish...
