The Budget Director’s Bottom Line: Thank You

Putting together the President’s Budget is no easy task—in a transition year, it’s particularly challenging.  Work that is usually done in six or eight months is done in six or eight weeks.  That we were able to put together a budget—while also working on the enactment and initial implementation of the Recovery Act—is a reflection of the dedication and quality of OMB’s career staff. (One of the most enjoyable parts of becoming OMB director is the opportunity to interact with the outstanding people who work here.)

Thank you to the fabulous OMB staff!
