10. That

"It's not going well"

...more money is going to other initiatives, does not mean this is not "not going well." Funding for these programs have increased.

"The article goes on to describe how much of what he has tried to accomplish is being undone by the current congress."

It describes the attacks from the House, but the fact is the funding and initiatives listed in the article are in progress.

Backers of the Sustainable Communities program, including Smart Growth America, working with allies in the Senate, managed to restore funding for Poticha’s office, but there is no money in the budget for grants this year. HUD may find some money to keep the grants going, but the agency will have to take it from another program.

One thing is certain, the administration is working with whatever cushion it has. This article is calling attention to the House's attempts to underfund these initiatives.
