Examining Possible Scenarios In U.S. Budget Negotiations And Effects On Foreign Aid

In the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition’s “Budget Watch” blog, Tod Preston, director of government relations at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, discusses four theories on what could happen with U.S. budget negotiations and the possible effects on foreign aid. “The first three scenarios are relatively defined, although only approximations of what may happen, with the possibility of a ‘wildcard’ fourth scenario: a new deal emerges that doesn’t resemble anything we could possibly envision at present,” Preston writes (1/22).
