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.
