In a functional system, yes, the house is supposed to approve of the spending. What we have now is a Democrat majority in the Senate passing continuing resolutions that basically extend the last budget that was passed. That was way back when the Dems controlled congress-remember when Obamacare was crammed through in the middle of the night? yeah, then. 4 years now that the Obama administration has not operated on a budget. 4 years of continuing spending without a cent of it documented on paper.
