US Budget Process

Next week I will begin the budget process with my students. In case you haven't done so here are some links.  First off Obama today signed a continuing resolution to keep our government open by continuing last year's spending levels for the next two weeks.  The Congress must pass thirteen spending bills by September 30th and has yet to pass one.  The rest of the budget process may be found here. As I tell my students if they worked liked the US Congress, they would simply put off their tests until the week before the AP exam - and then they would move that too and pay for it using next year's tax dollars (see US debt above)!
