House Spending Cut Plan

Jamie DuPree has the list … quite a long list … of the proposed spending cuts of over $2 trillion in the next 10 years proposed by the conservative republicans in the House.

I love the amount, and the list. I hate the “proposed” I want it a DONE DEAL!

This list was identified by the Republican Study Committee, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

So far, Republican leaders in the House have not issued their own plans for spending cuts, which many in the GOP want to push through before a vote on increasing the nation’s debt limit occurs, likely in March.

Top Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee also haven’t spelled out their game plan on the budget. A temporary spending plan for the federal government runs out on March 4, which means some action seems likely before then on budget cuts.

Here is a sample:

Corporation for Public Broadcasting Subsidy. $445 million annual savings.

Save America’s Treasures Program. $25 million annual savings.

International Fund for Ireland. $17 million annual savings.

Legal Services Corporation. $420 million annual savings.

National Endowment for the Arts. $167.5 million annual savings.

National Endowment for the Humanities. $167.5 million annual savings.

Hope VI Program. $250 million annual savings.

Amtrak Subsidies. $1.565 billion annual savings.

Eliminate duplicative education programs. H.R. 2274 (in last Congress), authored by Rep. McKeon, eliminates 68 at a savings of $1.3 billion annually.
