(15.) Senate Budget Committee, "Informed Budgeteer
: Sequestration and Appropriations," 11 June 2013, 1, http://www.budget.senate.gov/republican/public/index.cfm/files/serveiFile_id =f456987b-6fdf-4629-8fb3-dc8805150347.
Goert told the Budgeteer
News: "The city of Duluth does not have the capacity to keep up with all of the maintenance for all of the memorials in addition to their other duties, but groups like ours are extremely invested in the up-keep, and we are willing to have it be part of our ongoing work."
Perhaps the greatest fear of the budgeteer
is a political decision that endangers the financial stability of the organization.
Technical-economic imperatives are therefore subordinate to any noneconomic imperatives, especially political, identified by the budgeteer
. Absent a political (or other noneconomic) imperative, budgeteers
will be guided by technical-economic imperatives or the general economizing orientation of the CBBs.
But if the budgeteers
decide to tap the remaining $6 billion-plus in the state's Rainy Day Fund, they'll need two-thirds of the House and Senate to go along.
Not only are mounting deficits likely to catch up to Congressional budgeteers
both economically and politically, but mandatory spending (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and interest on the debt) remains a far greater--and faster growing--share of total federal spending (as shown in the graphic below).
My own view is that the absence of a formal document allows the programmers and budgeteers
to cherry-pick preferred guidance statements from the CNO and Secretary of the Navy documents and speeches.
This allowed budgeteers
to identify which agencies lacked adequate appropriations to process their bills and account for it in negotiations.
City on the Line, Kline's self-help book for longing budgeteers
, portrays his personal journey of changing a city's organizational cultural away from being a collection of departments and toward an organization committed to results.
But, as the IBD s editors put it, the government budgeteers
then went on to say
While supply chain savings will excite budgeteers
and logisticians, the reduction in time to reliably deliver parts will produce significant improvements in equipment readiness.
Or so the senior Budgeteers
told themselves, and young wet-behind-the-ears whippersnappers like me.
at the Capitol have been skimping on building maintenance and upkeep for years.
There has always been a network among budgeteers
and programmers, but there has not been a consistent network within financial operations, at least in my experience.
But right now, the country's budgeteers
have only given him 3 trillion or 15 percent of what he says is needed this year.
