...to keep using an otherwise routine federal funding bill...

That's the problem right there. There is nothing "routine" about these continuing funding resolutions. They are an abuse of the Constitution, because the Democrats refuse to pass an annual budget bill in the Senate that forces them to go on the record for or against certain spending programs.

It's their refusal to pass a budget that can then go to reconciliation committees that is at the root of all of this.

People are getting much to cozy with the "new normal" of continuing resolution bills. Just pass a budget already!
