The house and senate have to approve the budget before the president signs it. They usually tack on their own "pork" to the spending bills. So, yes, the house does approve the spending of government funds.

Correction to my post; the POTUS does not have to sign after the house passes the budget. It just goes into affect. So all this spending that everyone talks about has to go through the house first.

So, do you agree with all the big spending or do you agree with conservative republicans when they try to cut any spending?

Which is it?

I can agree with you here. Both the mainstream GOP leadership, and the DNC leadership, are to blame. And the White House too, they must accept their share of blame.

About the only ones really trying to curb government wasteful spending are the Tea Party and Libertarians. They have made that their signature platform plank.

The regular republicans and democrats aren't going to behave responsibly.
