The Top 10 Reasons Why the McConnell-Schumer Spending Bill is a Bad Deal

Responsible spending is not something Congress has proven itself to be good at, under Republican or under Democratic leadership.

Busting the Budget: How Congress Spends Over and Around the Budget Control Act

As Congress nears another deadline this Friday for funding the government, a lot is on the table in terms of what could be included in a deal to increase spending across the board.

The USA Act: Holding Congress Accountable for the Federal Budget

Reasserting lost Congressional authority has been a major theme this year, with the creation of the Article I Project and a House task force on executive overreach. Many legislators have taken charge in curbing the waste and latency plaguing the federal government, and Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA-5) is the latest to join the fight for such accountability.
