One Department at a time, Mr. Speaker. This will break them. Do not back down.

That's the Grand Plan (I hope); once the precedent is set, the House can control every budget ...

The House is supposed to be in control of every budget, anyway!

“One Department at a time, Mr. Speaker. This will break them. Do not back down.

That’s the way the Constitution set up the government to work. It is the House of Representatives under Pelosi and Boehner that abdicated its responsibility and agreed to the continuing resolutions demanded by Harry Reid and Obama. The House needs to reassert its responsibility for appropriations. Pass separate bills funding each department. Send them to the Senate. If Reid says the Senate won’t vote on them, it is Reid who is shutting down the government. No more continuing resolutions. No more 7% increase “baselines”. The baseline must be prior year spending.
