The government needs to start working on all spending (not just this one) and "make" and "adhere" to a balanced budget. They need to stop last minute bandaids like this one. They need to stop all the wasteful spending on duplicate projects, special interests etc. etc. Congress needs to WORK TOGETHER and meet the numerous needs of all the domestic and foreign issues facing our nation and do it in a timely manner. If we performed on our jobs the way congress does we wouldn't have a job.
