Everyone Seems To Want It So What Is The Hold-Up On The Biennial Budget?

The main function of Congress is undoubtedly the power of the purse. To exercise that power, Congress has to adhere to a set of procedures designated in the Budget Act of 1974, and to enact 12 annual stand-alone spending bills. This has not happened in two decades; 1994 was the last time the process was completed. Instead the annual budget has become a battleground between the Administration and Congress.
