Why conservatives should vote for piecemeal spending cuts

Rush Limbaugh led off his program today by commending Sen. Marco Rubio’s refusal to vote for another continuing resolution keeping the government going for three more weeks with $2 billion a week in cuts. But Bush White House aide Keith Hennessey, drawing on his long experience in exectutive-legislative to-and-fro, argues persuasively that conservatives should keep voting for short continuing resolutions, in order to keep the momentum for spending cuts going. For years liberals have been ratching spending up, he says, and now is conservatives’ chance to ratchet it down. Most congressional conservatives evidently saw things Hennessey’s way and the continuing resolution passed the House 271-158.
