Waiting for Obama

August 8, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

In The New York Times this morning Carl Hulse has a piece on what’s happening (or, rather, what’s not happening) with the appropriations process in Congress this year. Democrats are hedging their spending priorities on having Barack Obama (D-IL) in the White House and a stronger majority in Congress next year:

Here’s a recently-published report describing how the federal government might be affected in the meantime:

>As the FY 2009 appropriations process grinds to a halt, a new OMB Watch analysis of the past nine fiscal years reveals that the nation’s priorities are better served when Congress and the president work together to complete the annual appropriations process. Congress’s abandonment of the FY 2009 appropriations process increases the risk that the resources critical to vital government supports will be further constrained as both sides of the aisle simply refuse to work toward agreement on FY 2009 appropriations legislation.
