I am trying to sort all this out. Like everything else in Washington it is not the most straight forward of processes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The world is going to come to an end, well maybe not quite that drastic, if a budget is not passed by March 1st. The Hill reports that the administration is going to be late, again, submitting a budget. There is a budget for 2013 on the White House web page, what is that? The Republicans have submitted the 'Paul Ryan' budget which Democrats actually successfully campaigned against. I am not sure how many Republicans actually like the Paul Ryan budget. So with one phantom budget and one whipping-boy budget how is an actual budget for the entire federal government going to come together in the 39 days, 14 hours, 10 minutes, and 25 seconds?
