NEA History

In the spirit of New Year’s Eve and things that are scary and fiscal-cliffy: the above graph shows the NEA’s appropriations history in real and nominal dollars, along with an illustration of the actual percentage of the budget and party in control of the White House and Congress. (Looks like maybe the House of Representatives may be a bigger driver of the NEA budget than previously acknowledged?) And what the heck does that mean, as we stand on the precipice of the fiscal cliff tonight? Happy New Year’s Eve!
