    Speaker Boehner is getting Washington politicians back on the side of the American citizen. Imagine a federal funding bill that was not written by the unions or the banks or the car companies or Walll Street... it can be done.

    Too little and too late is worse than nothing at all. The fact is, there are only cuts from a budget that was never passed in the first place. Had they done nothing, the government would have closed down and forced a result. As is, there isn't any but the status quo.
