House Republican haven’t much of ANYTHING they have said they would do….
With the Democrats controling the Senate and Democratic President?
They haven’t got anything done except talk about it….
They haven’t even scored points with their House ‘investigative’ effort either…
The latest try will be a effort to make cut ‘s in Obamacare, social help programs, gutting housing assistance and a slew of others including a 45% cut in Foreign Aid ….
THIS isn’t gonna have much success either…
They have internal issues that probably will have them actually NEEDING Democratic House votes to get anything the Senate and President Biden will accept…
It IS increasing looking like Democrats in losing their majority in the House?
Has put them in a not too bad place….
Hard-right House Republicans are readying a plan to gut the nation’s foreign aid budget and make deep cuts to health care, food assistance and housing programs for poor Americans in their drive to balance the federal budget, as the party toils to coalesce around a plan that will deliver on their promise to slash spending.
Republicans are ready this week to condemn President Biden’s forthcoming budget as bloated and misguided, and have said they will propose their own next month. But uniting his fractious conference around a list of deep cuts to popular programs will be the biggest test yet for Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who will need to win the support of Republicans in competitive districts and conservative hard-liners to cobble together the 218 votes needed to win the passage of a budget plan.
Privately, even some top party officials have questioned how Republicans will meet their spending objectives while keeping their members in line.
The most conservative lawmakers in his conference — who are emboldened after their four-day standoff with Mr. McCarthy, a California Republican, earlier this year during his election as speaker — are pursuing cuts that they concede could cause political pain and blowback among their colleagues….
The outline includes a 45 percent cut to foreign aid; adding work requirements for food stamp and Medicaid beneficiaries; a 43 percent cut to housing programs, including phasing out the Section 8 program that pays a portion of monthly rent costs for low-income people; cutting the F.B.I.’s counterintelligence budget by nearly half; and eliminating Obamacare expansions to Medicaid to save tens of billions of dollars.
Nearly 40 states have accepted federal funding for expansion under the Affordable Care Act, providing health care coverage for an estimated 12 million individuals living near or below the poverty line.
The proposal would also eliminate the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Pentagon, cut $3.4 billion in State Department migration and refugee assistance, and make Pell grants available only to students whose families cannot contribute any money toward a college education….
Democrats are eager for Republicans to roll out their spending plan, expecting it to provide powerful ammunition to show the G.O.P. intends to slice a range of federal programs relied upon by Americans across all incomes.
“Show Us Your Plan” has become a rallying cry for Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the majority leader, as he and his fellow Democrats have called on Republicans to make public the budget cuts they want in return for raising the federal debt limit later this year to avoid a federal default….
With the G.O.P. holding such a narrow House majority, Republicans conceded that securing the 218 votes needed to approve a budget replete with politically charged cuts would be extremely difficult….
The Republican cuts mentioned above are just ‘throwaways’….
Biden and Democrats and even Republican’s in Biden/Democratic districts simply could NOT vote for them and keep their jobs …
The secret IS the Debt Ceiling WILL be raised by the end of this year….
Even if some cuits do squeeze thru….
