House GOP plans to protect DoD from more cuts
Friday - 3/16/2012, 9:51am EDT
National Journal reported budget committee chairman Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) proposal would eliminate the sequestration provisions of last year's deficit deal, but only for DoD.
It was not yet clear how the Ryan budget would offset those cancelled cutbacks. He told Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta entitlement spending should be part of the budget conversation.
"House Republicans are continuing their efforts to reprioritize the savings called for under the Budget Control Act, because our troops and military families shouldn't pay the price for Washington's failure to take action," Ryan said in a statement.
President Obama's budget proposal also proposes to undo sequestration, though a mixture of governmentwide spending cuts and tax increases.
