The Office of Management and Budget was established in 1921 to assist the president in preparing a budget for Congress. OMB’s new director is Sylvia Mathews Burwell. Born and raised in a small West Virginia town, Burwell is just the second woman to hold the high-level cabinet position. She faces an uphill battle with House Republicans: they’ve drafted several bills slashing discretionary programs and are demanding that sequester cuts continue. And a new CBO report warns ending the sequester would hurt the economy. Diane talks with OMB Director Sylvia Burwell about navigating the looming budget battle and making government more efficient.
