As House Republican leaders work to put together the second stop-gap spending bill of the year, House conservatives are getting fed up with the whole process. They don’t like the idea of spending the remainder of the fiscal year – until Sept. 30 – fighting with Democrats over miniscule spending cuts that make little headway in cutting into the government’s huge debt burden, Politico reports.

stop-gap, spending, conservatives“I don’t think a lot of people have the stomach to do this ad infinitum,” said freshman Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho. He doesn’t see the debate on short-term funding going on much longer.

Fellow Republican freshman Rep. Allen West of Florida said his constituents “are tired of half-measures.”

Another freshman Republican, Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, says he’s even voting against the stop-gap measure because he prefers the longer-term cuts approved last month by House Republicans.
