Yes.. you are fearmongering and you ahve absolutely no idea how our government works. Congress is responsible for day to day operations when it comes
to how someting is funded. Congress can make any committee they want to deal with whatever consitutionally delegated authority they.
They what? Come on, finish that thought, damnit!
Yes, Congress should be forced to do their job, wehich is to represent the American people, not whatever political party they are a member of.
Our reps represent their district, not just the people who voted for them.
And bills created by an elite committee that instantly create cuts across the board if one doesn't pass by a certain deadline is not representing the

If I were you I would go back to what ever institution you took your civic class from and ask for a refund because you got screwed.
Were you looking in a mirror when you typed that, because clearly you were not directing it towards me. And the mere fact that you're merely
insulting people and their education makes it clear that you are not interested in civil discourse, so I shall name thee TROLL.
