A spending bill in the U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed last night is considered a long shot to win approval in the Senate. Congressman Don Bacon says it’s a long way from having a solid and forward thinking legislative environment.
Bacon says, “The current talk is instead of maybe a one month C-R the House passed last night, maybe they would do a four or five day continuing resolution. I think the whole thing is broke. This is dysfunctional. We need to do regular order and we’ve got to get back to voting on twelve appropriations bills.”
Bacon says the House and Senate need to put side partisan bickering that leads to roadblocks. Tough decisions need to be made regarding military funding, immigration reform and border security.
