(Worthy News) - The House late Thursday passed President Trump's proposal to rescind $15 billion in previously appropriated funding by the government that was never spent.

The vote is meant to put conservatives at ease about the huge two-year spending deal lawmakers reached this year, which will increase spending by about $300 billion over that period of time. But the vote almost didn't happen. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
