I support H.R. 106: Congressional Budget Accountability Act because it seems like the right thing to do. What I have to wonder is what is done with this money currently?

I oppose H.R. 106: Congressional Budget Accountability Act because the use it or loose it mentality in federal government programs causes massive wastes of money. Do not institute it anywhere else!
