The Defense, Labor, and Health and Human Services (HHS) minibus, H.R. 6157 spends profligately on programs included in the minibus and includes a short-term continuing resolution (CR) for remaining appropriations bills into fiscal year 2019. This CR is an extension of the excessive spending agreed to under the Bipartisan Budget Act, which was passed by Congress in February and spent nearly $300 billion more than the previously established spending caps meant to control the rate of spending growth. H.R. 6157 is more of the same profligate spending resulting from a broken budget process and members unwilling to stand up for their campaign promises of shrinking government and reducing spending.
