This is simply a ploy by corrupt politicians that make the bulk of this money from lobbyist and special interest pay offs to cripple the newer and incoming Congressional Representatives that threaten their stranglehold on governmental influence. The GOP leadership will stop at nothing to create a oligarchy. Just have the existing budget continue on at existing rates until a newer budget can be agreed upon. If members of Congress won't cooperate or negotiate, vote them out. We the people need a better way to remove Congress members that are single handedly obstructing our government.
