Skip to comments.White House: Budget cuts to president's office hurt debt efforts
Posted on 07/18/2011 10:34:54 AM PDT by opentalk
Proposed House cuts to the Executive Office of the President's (EOP) budget will hurt administration efforts to cut the deficit, the White House argues.
The Obama administration made the argument in comments on H.R. 2434, the 2012 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act. That bill could be on the House floor as early as next week, and would decrease funding for the EOP from $705 million to $640 million.
"The level of resources provided in the bill would significantly impact the EOP's role in assisting the president in carrying out his constitutional duties as head of the executive branch, including protecting national security interests, developing policies to address the challenges facing the nation, reducing the deficit and spending taxpayer dollars more cost-effectively, and managing the Federal agencies," the administration said in a statement of administration policy (SAP).
The statement also rejected a proposed cut of $109 million to the IRS, saying that would require 4,200 staff reductions. These cuts, it argued, would cost the government $4 billion in revenues, as tax enforcement efforts would be stunted.

I don’t think I have to worry about him using my idea.
How can cutting 10% of the bloated EOP funds ,stop Obama from doing his Constitutional job, that he isn’t doing anyway?
So he has to eat tough old Sirloin instead of Wagyu and Blue Crabs instead of Lobster.He may even have to order a Godfather’s Pizza instead of flying in his own chef.
He can begin his reordering by sending the mother-in-law back to Chicago. I’ve often wondered who’s paying her freight. sd
Ah feel yore pain, Mr. President.
Now deal with it, sir. There’s no whining in presidenting. Buck up and act like an adult.
While they sully the White House like trailer park trash.
I don’t remember ever seeing a First Family that ran around barefoot in the White House...
They may think it keeps the carpets cleaner.
