As another deadline to fund the federal government quickly approaches and negotiations on a long-term deal between the White House and Congressional leadership seem to stall, House Republicans Friday once again introduced a short-term continuing resolution that would keep the government open while cutting about $6 billion over the next three weeks.
Speaker of the House John Boehner says that the onus now falls on President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to “come forward with a coherent position that will facilitate discussions leading to enactment of a long-term measure that cuts spending.”

For crying out loud, make the cuts and force the Dems to vote down/veto it.
