The GOP controls the House. Time to stop perpetuating the nonsense of all-you-can-eat government budgets. Start proposing ITEMIZED, granular appropriations. PRIORITIZE. Start by funding NORAD and the submarine operations of the Navy. (REAL, strategic defense.) Move on to funding the Federal Courts and such, whatever. Real, Constitutional stuff.
Leave ethanol mandates, the DEA, HUD, Dept of Ed, etc, to ROT. And in doing all this in an ITEMIZED fashion, you put people on the record for support or non support of individual items.
This is how Congress was supposed to operate. And they'd be so busy getting the basics done, it would tie their hands from all the criminal mischief in which they normally engage.
