I was just told I had to spend 13 thousand dollars by today for the end of the fiscal year 2011. Thats just my little dept. What the heck in going on... If every dept. in the US Govt. saved the extra money they had at the end of the fiscal year and gave it back, (Without being penalized for not spending it, as in lowering the budget for the following year, thats why I'm told we have to spend it all.) then we would not be in the debt crisis we are in right now. I believe it would go a long way toward paying down the national 14 + trillion dollar debt. That's pretty simple.... On a side note if the congress and senate can't make a decision on this debt crisis they need to be the first ones that don't get a pay check.
