Fixing the Federal Budget Featuring Jason Fichtner

Jason J. Fichtner

Former Senior Research Fellow

In our Capitol Hill Campus course, Dr. Jason Fichtner walks through the steps that go into making the federal budget. From its beginnings in the White House, through the many roles Congress takes to authorize and enforce the budget, he navigated the twisting, puzzling conglomeration of bureaucratic steps, political goals, and accounting rules that go into making our government function.
