March 15: The president signs into law a budget to dramatically reduce the government programs that require for their maintenance, continued borrowing from nations like China. This new budget--known as the Big-Bird Budget--makes an across the board cut of 25 percent in funding for the federal agencies in charge of Commerce, Education, Agriculture, Labor, and Health and Human Services. Slightly less drastic cuts of 20 percent are mandated for Transportation, Veteran's Affairs, the Department of the Interior, the Federal Trade Commission, the Social Security Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The budget for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is singled out for a deeper cut of 50 percent.


Funding is eliminated entirely for each of the following independent agencies and government corporations:


Corporation for Public Broadcasting

Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

National Endowment for the Arts

National Endowment for the Humanities

Corporation for National and Community Service

Election Assistance Commission

Federal Labor Relations Authority

National Science Foundation

Commission on Civil Rights


And that would just about wrap up Mitt Romney's first couple of months of work as President of the United States. He would be due for a three-week vacation at Camp David "with a few close friends," where he could ponder the possible accomplishments of his next few months in office.
