Talk:2018 United States federal budget

Update with "real" budget, not the blueprintEdit

The page is talking about the budget blueprint, not the real budget.

The blueprint was submitted in March, but the "real budget" was submitted on 23 May 2017.

Also when the article cites the "total" of the budget it could be worth noting that this only counts the discretionary budget authority.

Criticism SectionEdit

No other federal budget has a criticism section on it, yet this one has a quote by 2016 Presidential Democratic candidate hopeful Bernie Sanders opposing it. He was one of the biggest opponents of Trump in the election. How is this an unbiased article? This section should be removed.

Can "runs" be used for an event which already ended?Edit

sorry if I'm completely wrong, but the FY 2018 is over for the US. This is a fact but if you google it like I just did, you get to read before the first real search result is shown a text quotation in a square, most of you know this I guess, its pretty cool and in most cases its useful, I don't know if Wikipedia/Wikimedia is happy about some "lost" clicks because some or maybe even many people do not need more information. It starts with:

The United States federal budget for fiscal year 2018, which runs from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018, was named America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again.

Isn't that wrong since the FY 2018 is over? I guess many people who are not interested in such things do not even really know it, but the United States FY 2019 is the one which "runs" now since I think exactly 45 days (31 October + 14 November) or?!

As I already said, sorry if I'm wrong I was just wondering. Greetings from Berlin, Germany :) Kilon22 (talk) 14:41, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
