This is my weapon, this is my gun – this one’s for fighting, this one’s for fun.
House Republicans pledged Thursday to slice more than $32 billion from agency budgets over the next few months, …represents an unprecedented rollback that would force some domestic agencies to immediately slash spending by as much as 20 percent,
But a group of conservative Republicans is demanding even deeper cuts and vowing to offer a plan to slash $100 billion from agency budgets
Cuts would fall most heavily on
the Food and Drug Administration;
justice and science programs;
and financial services.
would face much smaller reductions, as would state and foreign operations.
Under the GOP plan, agencies related to national security –
including the Pentagon and
the departments of Homeland Security and
Veterans Affairs –
would get a slight bump in funding,
receiving an extra $8 billion compared with current levels.
Mine’s bigger than yours and I’m going to prove it.
Weapons won – people zero.
Guns win – people get screwed.
