The United States Government must do away with the practice of the "use it or lose it" condition for federal assistance monies. "because of excess end-of-year funding," is why a particular training is now being offered in my organization. The business of awarding this year above what was awarded last year, regardless of the "real" need or availability of "backed" money is totally absurd. Liabilities should not exceed assets; why do we need to raise the debt ceiling just to continue to take more from hard working folks to give to those who choose not to. It is time for government to get their heads and their act together for the good of our country.
