    Default Government Spending Spree?

    I hope this means good things for government employees...

    Get Ready for a Massive Government Spending Spree

    A combination of factors will see federal agencies trying to spend as much as 40 percent of their budgets in the final two months of the fiscal year.

    A government spending spree of potentially historic proportions will play out over the final seven weeks of fiscal 2018, as federal agencies look to spend $140 billion more than they thought they’d get before Congress signed the omnibus spending bill.

    It depends on what kind of money it is. A lot of times if you have a budget of $1M and you only spend $750,000 then next year you may only get $750,000 as you budget.
    May the force be with us.
