I think this stub should be deleted, or at the least it's name should be changed to indicate that the entry is not about "discretionary spending" but is instead about an aspect of the United States budget.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 01:53, 9 February 2007
It applies outside of the US as well...you're welcome to expand.Smallman12q (talk) 00:47, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
It also applies to non-governmental spending; really what's ideally needed imo is a disambiguation page with two links: 1) to the general economic concept and 2) to the specific concept in US Govt finance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:35, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
