House Appropriations Committee List Of Cuts

Recommended Posts

No corporate welfare or defense removed of course why would they?!


2011 Defense Budget $708 Billion Dollars / Homeland Security Budget 2011 $43.6 Billion Dollars


But they do want to strip community health and assistance programs that primarily help the poor and sick. And naturally anything to do with science and the arts which the right has been after for years.


Today the GOP also blocked or is attempting to block tax increases on the oil companies while in these cuts they are affecting energy conservation, research, and pollution control. Its so obvious that the right is going to do their evil best to keep American citizens poor, ignorant, and sick.


Defense is another cash cow the GOP won't cut but the tea party says that everything is on the table well we'll see if they mean defense or they go after Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and other so called "entitlement programs" they are not "entitlement programs" these programs are for Americans who are in need of help and who worked.


To misrepresent what those programs truly are is an attempt to demonize them to make cutting or ending them seem like the right thing to do to the uninformed borders on criminal.


The sad truth is the bill has come due for the decades of wreck-less spending and the government is going to not only try and blame America but make the American people pay whether they want to or not!






WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers today announced a partial list of 70 spending cuts that will be included in an upcoming Continuing Resolution (CR) bill. The CR legislation will fund the federal government for the seven months remaining in the fiscal year and prevent a government wide shut-down, while significantly reducing the massive increases in discretionary spending enacted in the last several years by a Democrat majority. A full list of program cuts will be released when the bill is formally introduced.


The total spending cuts in the CR will exceed $74 billion, including $58 billion in non-security discretionary spending reductions. The statement by Chairman Rogers on these cuts follows:


“Never before has Congress undertaken a task of this magnitude. The cuts in this CR will represent the largest reduction in discretionary spending in the history of our nation.


“While making these cuts is hard, we have a unique opportunity to right our fiscal ship and begin to reduce our massive deficits and debt. We have taken a wire brush to the discretionary budget and scoured every program to find real savings that are responsible and justifiable to the American people.


“Make no mistake, these cuts are not low-hanging fruit. These cuts are real and will impact every District across the country - including my own. As I have often said, every dollar we cut has a constituency, an industry, an association, and individual citizens who will disagree with us. But with this CR, we will respond to the millions of Americans who have called on this Congress to rein in spending to help our economy grow and our businesses create jobs.”

Washington D.C. IS 'big business' and 'big business' IS Washington D.C..


When even a Republican (G. Bush) pays billions of dollars in 'corporate welfare' to bail out companies like AIG, our country is no longer what we believed it to be, especially when 'welfare' to the poor and low income people is cut at the same time that 'big business' gets their handout.


The 'political game' is rotting from the inside out...

Attack your enemy where they are weakest: the poor, the sick and the nerds.


"Government provided books, medicine, and food for starving, illiterate, sick children!?"

"Lands! The Republic will surely fall from this threat to the American Family."
