What does the president's fy13 budget proposal mean for Llnl?

No one expects Obama's FY2013 budget to ever be passed. It's been called "dead on arrival", much like most of the other fiscal budgets of late.

End result should be flat-line funding, expect that the "Super Agreement" made last summer is on a path to result in massive cuts to defense related budgets (inc. NNSA) and those big cuts begins on January 2013. With the dead-lock in Congress it looks like those cuts will, indeed, begin to happen. That's what you should be concentrating on instead of the largely meaningless FY2013 Obama budget.

Absolutely correct. With Congress deadlocked, don't worry about what they might do. Worry about what they won't do.

The best hope for a budget favorable to the strategic nuclear deterrent is Kyl.

How could this happen? Just one year ago the future looked so bright. What caused Chu to change his mind?
There were press reports that Chu was displeased with the way UC ran the LANL director search. Was the budget a payback for that error?

Obama promised secure funding for CMRR to get the START treaty passed in the Senate. Once passed, he quickly turned his back on CMRR and LANL and killed it.

The man is a liar. I hope the voters at LANL consider well who they vote for in 2012. Obama is no friend of the workers in Northern New Mexico.

Don't take it personal. He also killed Yucca Mountain, another brilliant idea!

At least he is pretty consistent with his say one thing and do another approach...
