WH sends $15 billion in proposed spending cuts

The White House is finalizing a multi-billion roster of proposed spending cuts but is leaving this year’s $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill alone.Cut request could total in the $15 billion range, up from the most recent estimate of $11 billion. Those cuts likely won’t come out of the $1.3 trillion omnibus funding bill signed into law in March, but will come from past spending that was never used.

 $800 million in cuts would come from money created by the Affordable Care Act?

So you spend 1.3 trillion and ask for 15 billion back so they can say they are fiscal hawks. Shallow

Why does the GOP always propose this nonsense that has no chance of being passed?

Not going to happen. But good luck ever getting another bipartisan piece of legislation passed ever again.
