They want to go pork up one more great big spending bill and load trillions of dollars of additional debt onto the backs of our children, our grandchildren. It is immoral. We should be doing a C.R. into next year so that after the people vote for a new Congress, that Congress would come in and do the budget for that year for the balance of the year.
