So today I learned what a Continuing Resolution (CR) is in terms of government budgeting.

Basically, the US federal government has become so big and so expansive, that our 535 (five-hundred and thirty-fucking-five) members of congress literally don't have enough time in the fiscal year to figure out how to adjust the funding for all of these programs/branches/bureaus/administrations/agencies etc etc.

So they have invented something called a continuing resolution, which means that funding continues at the old rate, for a determined period of time.

For example let's say some agency was funded $12,000,000 this fiscal year, and congress won't be able to figure out what to do with it for at least 3 months into the next fiscal year, the CR grants them $3,000,000 for the next 3 months while they figure out what to do about the remaining 9 months.

So basically when the government has become so big that you need to rely on CRs to give you enough time to figure out how to fund and manage it, well.......
