U.S. Begins Yet Another Fiscal Year Without a Budget

Monday October 4th, 2010   •   Posted by Randall Holcombe at 3:49am PDT   •  

October 1 is the beginning of the federal government’s 2011 fiscal year. Congress has not passed a budget, and it appears likely that one won’t be passed until January. The government that wants to take over and run your health care (and other aspects of your life) can’t even pass its own budget.

One remarkable thing about this is, nobody’s remarking on it. I saw nothing in my newspaper about it. When I Googled “fiscal year 2011 budget” Google told me there were more than 19 million results. While I didn’t look through all of them, I didn’t see anything very critical. CNN ran this story which mentioned that a budget hadn’t been passed (well into the article), and also noted that this has been common over the last several decades. Here is a blog post that just says Congress has passed a continuing resolution to fund federal programs until a budget is passed. There probably are some critical comments among those 19 million hits, but for the most part this is something most people haven’t even noticed.
