I think the solution being discussed in the article Fresh Tack in Budget Battle by Janet Hook of The Wall Street Journal is on track with what is needed. The article reports senior aides to House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) have begun discussing a bill being prepared by
House Republicans to fund government operations through September.
This bill will extend operating funds at the lower levels set to kick in Friday and to give more flexibility to the Pentagon to manage its cuts.
I agree, this seems like the most reasonable course of action in conjunction with the spending management being given to domestic agencies as well.
