Unfortunately, the Congress would get more blame than Bush for a funding shut-down.

Since Bush is targeting not just excessive spending, but favorite Dem. programs, a bolder Congress would make it clear well in advance that the next bill after a veto would achieve no-gain-in-outlays but at the expense of every possible Republican toy being nixed. Make those GOP congressmen understand how budgets can bite you in the ass. This partisan pain must be clear before Bush gets to hold the veto pen so that he's getting GOP pleas not to gut their programs.
