- I'm Sure This Is Nothing To Worry About
Lets' suppose for a moment that your job was to use George Soros's platinum card to pay his expenses. Included in that would of course be some flexibility to manage your own costs as well. You deliver a budget every year which explains to Mr. Soros how you'll spend his money, but you aren't required to. Every year he chafes a bit at the increasingly large numbers, but he accepts it because he has no choice. And since you aren't required to produce the budget for him it's really his only guide of what to expect for his expenses in the coming year.
What circumstance do you think it would signal if after having produced budgets every year in the past, this year you've decided not to? What message about future spending should Mr. Soros get from that turn of events?
Democrats refuse to produce a budget for the US government.
