President Obama Submits Budget Request to Congress

It’s hard to believe, but it was only last week when President Barack Obama sent his final budget request to Congress. 

As expected for a Democratic President in his last year in office, the Republican-controlled Congress will largely ignore President Obama’s budget request, however it will be used by both Parties to fuel discussions about their competing visions regarding how the federal government can best serve the American people.

Congress will be out for much of the year because of the upcoming elections, so expect a compressed timeline for appropriations and a flurry of activity over the next 12 weeks.
