The Harvard Political Review released the Fiscal Year 2012 Annual Report of the U.S.A. last week, offering an analysis of the federal budget and challenges facing American spending policy. Coincidentally, the report was published just hours before Congressional leaders announced that they had hammered out a deal to end the federal government shutdown, which began on October 1.

Congress failed to pass the federal budget bill for the 2014 fiscal year by Oct. 1, resulting in the closure of nonessential federal organizations and the furlough of federal workers across the nation. Negotiations are presently at a stalemate.
