President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan have teamed up this summer to do something that hasn’t happened in two decades — write and pass department spending bills instead of lumping everything into a massive package.
The House and Senate are moving at a brisk pace to pass the appropriations bills, with the Senate leading, approving nine of 12.
The article goes on to state the following:
What’s more, the Trump administration has pushed through key priorities on wall and Pentagon spending, as well as curbing wasteful programs, though still ending up with a more expensive budget than they wanted by over $50 billion.
“This is all driven by the president,” said a key congressional insider. “It’s a win for the president. For 20 years this system has been busted.”
Nobody is as pleased as McConnell. Last week he said that the passage of department spending packages was a huge achievement, “given how completely fouled up the government funding process has been for 20 years, 20 years.”
