    2 Corrupt Washington Moves to PERMANENTLY Fund Itself

    " …A group of Republican Senators have introduced legislation that would make future government shutdowns impossible by creating a permanent continuing resolution should budget negotiations fail.”

    “… this bill would make permanent all government funding, forever, while taking all power from the voters to influence what the government does…”

    “…the bill was introduced by Republican senators, including “libertarian” Mike Lee (R-Utah)…”

    ‘…” If this doesn’t demonstrate that the people in Washington, from both parties, and from across the political spectrum, have no interest in the national interest, nothing will.”

    Yup, RINO's wearing the CONservative brand will fund D.C. in perpetuity. With our tax dollars.

    Corrupt Washington moves to permanently fund itself

    January 11, 2019 at 12:14 pm Robert Zimmerman

    The coming dark age: A group of Republican Senators have introduced legislation that would make future government shutdowns impossible by creating a permanent continuing resolution should budget negotiations fail.

    Currently, when Congress fails to meet a deadline to pass a government funding bill, the agencies which remain unfunded shut down. Often, Congress chooses to pass what’s called a continuing resolution (CR) to delay and extend the deadline to pass funding bills, which keeps funding operations at their current levels. The “End Government Shutdowns Act” would automatically create a continuing resolution for any appropriations bill not passed by Oct. 1, the deadline to pass a bill funding the government for the next fiscal year. In theory, this would allow members of Congress to continue to negotiate over appropriations while keeping the government open.

    CR funding would be reduced by 1 percent after 120 days, and would be reduced by another 1 percent every 90 days “until Congress does its job and completes the annual appropriations process,” according to the release announcing the bill.

    To put this in plain language, this bill would make permanent all government funding, forever, while taking all power from the voters to influence what the government does. Congress would no longer need to do anything to get its money to its cronies, and no matter what the voters did, the money would still flow. The one percent reduction in funding every 90 days is worthless, a mere bone to make everything think they mean business. It would be years before any government department would feel a pinch from this reduction, and in that time they would easily have the opportunity to get the reduction canceled.

    Note that the bill was introduced by Republican senators, including “libertarian” Mike Lee (R-Utah). If this doesn’t demonstrate that the people in Washington, from both parties, and from across the political spectrum, have no interest in the national interest, nothing will.

    Sounds like they are attempting to make themselves obsolete and even more useless.

    They make em up as they need them. Your rule of law. This clown show should be held accountable for every law they legislate even after they leave office. Think long, think hard, its much more difficult to vote yea or nay when you will be held accountable.

    I am very disappointed in Sen. Mike Lee, Utah, for sponsoring this bill.
    Shutdaowns are as fine a political tool as any. These RINOs say a shutdown doesn't'' work, but the real problem is that Congress doesn't work.
    Forget the Libertarian label, the swamp goes out to the desert now.
    This article lists the Republican Pigs in this sty.
    Any of these Republican Porkers should be Primaried.

    'Republican Senators Introduce Legislation That Would ‘Permanently Prevent’ Federal Government From Shutdowns
    4:59 PM 01/11/2019 | Politics
    Henry Rodgers | Capitol Hill Reporter

    A group of Republican Senators introduced legislation Friday that would permanently prevent the federal government can never shut down.

    Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, Montana Sen. Steve Daines, Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson, Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi, Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, Idaho Sen. Jim Risch, Utah Sen. Mike Lee, and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski introduced the legislation – the “End Government Shutdowns Act,” which will make it so the federal government can never shutdown.

    This comes as the government has been partially shutdown for 21 days. Republican members of congress have lobbied members of Congress to reach an agreement on a bill that would fund the government and protect the borders.

    “It’s disappointing that both sides didn’t resolve this matter weeks ago. Shutdowns inevitably costs taxpayers more money once the government reopens. I hope that both parties come together and reach an agreement that brings a resolution to this issue as quickly as possible,” Portman said in a statement.

    “Moving forward, we should end government shutdowns for good. This bipartisan legislation will accomplish that goal, providing lawmakers with more time to reach a responsible resolution to budget negotiations, giving federal workers and their families more stability, and ensuring we avoid disruptions that ultimately hurt our economy, taxpayers and working families,” he continued.



    Daines, who also sponsored the bill, echoed a very similar message, saying government shutdowns do not work and that this legislation will help hold members of congress accountable of keeping the government open.

    “Shutdowns don’t work. Yet we’re seeing them happen time and time again,” Daines said in a statement. “The End Government Shutdowns Act will hold Congress accountable to funding the government and ensure that hardworking folks aren’t paying the price for the partisan, political games being played in DC.”

    Daines introduced a bill on the Senate floor Thursday that would withhold the pay of members of Congress during future government shutdowns. The bill, sponsored by Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn, comes hours after Daines announced he sent a letter requesting the secretary of the U.S. Senate withhold his pay during the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government.

    Trump was on Capitol Hill Wednesday for a meeting with Republican senators to discuss the shutdown and border wall funding. He said Republicans were “unified” after the meeting.

    The president also warned Democrats he might declare a national emergency if they cannot come to an agreement soon.
