All but those living in an isolated cave in some distant mountain are aware that the budget situation for the government for at least the next few years — arguably as far as the eye can see — is going to be very tight. Given the many important missions government performs for people, this creates an imperative to stretch every dollar as far as possible. It is always good to try to save the government money, but never in my memory has this good-government mantra had more bite and urgency.
