President Trump Pulls Out His Trimming Shears
« on: April 03, 2018, 11:03:49 PM »

He will be sending a request to Congress next week, asking for substantial cuts from the omnibus spending bill just signed into law.

A little-known provision in a nearly 45-year-old law just might allow President Donald Trump to cut some of the funding levels in the beheamoth $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill he signed into law just two weeks ago.

Calling the move a “long shot,” The Washington Post reports the president will be sending a “rescission request” to Congress that slashes funding. Details of the cuts weren’t available, according to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s spokesman, Matt Sparks, but White House Legislative Director Marc Short told the Washington Post:

“The administration is certainly looking at a rescission package, and the president takes seriously his promise to be fiscally responsible.”

The request will reportedly be delivered to Congress upon its return from the Easter-Spring Recess next Monday. The Washington Post report suggests Democrats in the Senate can block the measure, even if it passes the House.

Rescission is defined as “the cancellation of budget authority previously provided by Congress.” It was provided in an obscure clause of the 1974 Impoundment Control Act, and allows the president to request that budgeted funds be rescinded—but Congress must act within 45 days or the funds must be made available as specified originally by Congress.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said he was “very supportive” and “extremely pleased” with the House GOP leadership’s “willingness to engage” on the spending issue. He said he believes McCarthy will work with the White House to “address the issue in a meaningful way.”

Before he signed the omnibus bill, the president reminded Congress he would have vetoed it had he not been compelled on national security grounds to do so. He said he will not sign a bill like it ever again.

If he manages to cut the Planned Parenthood Abortion funding, or dismantle them completely...I will gain his respect. :D
