This is getting pretty sad and makes life hard for all government agencies.
The last Congress should have passed the budget before the election. The lame duck Congress should have finished it.
Now this House passed it and the Senate and them need to learn to reconcile. Once the FY starts Congress should have all pay with held from them till they get their jobs done.
If I didn't get results I would be disciplined and risk losing pay, why should they get fat checks while they mismange?
