Longer term, it would make sense to limit the spend on ANY appropriation to some amount, like a billion dollars. Then there would be even MORE granularity of voting. Instead of cutting a deal for a bloated defense budget and a bloated welfare budget, have lots of individual votes on each, upping the funding by no more than a billion at a time. The coalitions of dealmakers would break down, and nobody could trust anyone in Congress because they couldn't logroll their pet stuff in with enough other stuff.
