The President’s Budget Request and Why You Should Read It

On February, 9, 2016, I anxiously waited for the President’s Budget Request for Fiscal Year 2017. I was crazy excited for it to be released and I had been waiting on it all year. Now, my exposure to the president’s budget begun through my 9 to 5, but my excitement grew from learning about the current trajectory the U.S. government/country is on. When I realized that not everyone is excited about the budget and not everyone know’s that this document gets released once a year, I knew that I had to spread the word.
