McCarthy Aims for 8% Spending Cut, Border Wall in Bid to Avoid Gov’t Shutdown

Monday, September 18, 2023 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) – House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has offered a plan to congressional Republicans to avoid a government shutdown that would cut overall spending by 1% of current levels for 31 days.

Bloomberg reports the speaker wants a total 8% spending cut for domestic agencies and the resumption of construction of the border wall.

McCarthy discussed the plan with Republicans in a conference call Sunday night. He told them they should be prepared to stay through this weekend to pass a stopgap measure, called a continuing resolution, that would keep government offices open past the Sept. 30 deadline. But many are already bracing for the heavy political fallout of a federal shutdown. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
