Having managed several huge budgets, it is far easier to do budget's on a yearly basis. First, you can react more quickly when something goes awry; secondly, you can track and hold accountable each line item performance on a timely basis. Unfortunately, the budget is a game played by the two sides taking opposite sides depending on who has the majority. We've seen the Democrats say identical things that the Republicans are saying when they were in charge. If we could get away from this radical partisanship bickering and back to real governance by our elected officials. This fake bitterness diss;layed by the minority Democrats is disgusting and shameful. all 535 in Congress are adults and should act like they are responsible and serious about leading this country.
