No budget better than anti-green budget?

So Congress still doesn't have a budget. That's bad, but I'm more afraid about the kind of budget we'll eventually end up with when they do pass it. All the good green stuff the Obama administration had put in place are likely going to be the first to go. And that scares LaGreenga's father, all the way back in France, who says, "If the U.S. don't lead the way with the environment, we're all screwed." (Imagine it with a funny French accent.)

From the New York Times:
Congress approved another stopgap budget bill, voting to continue financing the federal government until April 8 to allow more time for negotiations on a spending plan for the rest of the fiscal year ending Sept. 30.

Republicans in both chambers bucked their party leadership to oppose the bill, saying that it did not cut spending enough and that they were ready to force a government shutdown to press the point. “The problem that we have is the Republican majority does not agree with itself,” said Representative Steny H. Hoyer, Democrat of Maryland.
