Baseline Budgeting

By Tom McClintock on April 8, 2014

Mr. Speaker:

Our Constitution assigns the principle responsibility over the public purse to the House of Representatives.  Under that Constitutional doctrine, a dollar can't be spent by this government unless the House says it gets spent.

Yet today, spending increasingly seems to be out of our hands - driven automatically by a variety of provisions and practices that thwart the very design of the Constitution.

Roughly 2/3 of our spending is for legal entitlements, over which we have lost any direct control in the appropriations process.  That's the big problem.   But there are other problems as well that this bill addresses.
