No.....I'm not certain, but it would seem logical that IF it is already budgeted, but not spent, it will carry-over to another Administration.
Think of 'roll-over' cellphone minutes.....
Much 'hay' has been made in past decades about grossly over-charging items in, say....the Military budget, for instance.
Stories about the $800 hammer, or pick a number, any number....it seems to be self-fullfilling prophecy that if you don't spend ALL in your
'budget', that you stand to lose, through cuts, in future.
Hence....the ball rolls on.
Now.....that is an example of the MIC....and, it helped to 'stimulate' the economy, through graft and corruption. As example, the 'downline'
suppliers for that $800 hammer all got a piece of the action....
Perhaps a small gesture...again, $100,000 in terms of Federal Spending, is miniscule....really, it is penny-ante.
I daresay, more focus should be directed to (since ATS is a 'conspiracy' site) ...should be directed to the 'Black' funding.....TRILLIONS and
TRILLIONS of Dollars, alloted to programs that are 'black' for 'National Security' reasons....
And the wannabe 'reporters' on Fox are worried about a new budget that is only a tip of the iceberg????
So....this tiny tempest in a teapot, i.e., the re-decorationg debacle, has led to a greater truth....once you begin to ferret it out.
