As I read through this week’s material and the question presented. I am curious of the word intervention. The last six years operating under a continuing resolution has adjusted our expectation for what we can afford and how we (as a country) have adapted to emerging requirements. Budgets exist to fundamentally anticipate how commitments can be mitigated (Shayfritz & Hyde, 2007).

President Clinton would represent Homeland Security policy. During his administration the budget was actually more balanced than any other time.
