ABSTRACT
The article outlines the status of the government's budget planning in the U.S. Critics observed that the Cabinet officials are sluggish on the financial planning, wherein the federal budget has come to a virtual standstill. During a typical year, agencies would be preparing their spending plans for fiscal year 2010, inaugurating a process that culminates with the president's budget submission to Congress in February 2009 but the even is not the usual politics. Because of such arena, President George W. Bush decided not to prepare a budget for fiscal 2010.
