Rheumatic heart disease program funding cut from $40.8 billion to $26.3 billion.
President George W. Bush signed legislation into law in late April that funds the federal government through June and ends the sequester. And the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is supposed to provide medical care to veterans but is not expected to provide much more than that this year because Congress will not approve the new budget, will lose $15 billion.
But the president also ordered spending cuts for the next three months. He said he wanted Congress to give him more time to decide how to replace Obamacare by the end of the fiscal year in July.
The sequester cut, $85.4 billion over 10 years, is already at $18.2 billion for the current fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. That includes the $45 billion cuts and continuing cuts to government agencies approved in the 2012 budget안산출장샵 agreement, known as the sequester. But the law does not provide the president with that amount of time to implement the cuts or put them behind him, a fact that is expected to further stymie his desire to replace Obamacare.
“There is still time to bring those long-term cuts in line with the longer-term spending caps before they take effect,” White House budget director Mick Mulvaney told reporters. “There’s still a way to go for the long-term cuts.”
But at least one Republican lawmaker, Sens. Lindsey O. Graham and Bill Cassidy, said they would not vote for a spending bill that passed on June 30 that included cuts to the VA program, so that the government would continue paying its bills and fund the cost of benefits for veterans and their families. They are leading push to hold Republicans accountable for the “fiscal cliff” to end sequestration.

The Senate voted to advance a bill to reopen the government, which is expected to receive its funding on June 13, with Democratic support.
The Senate’s effort to fund the government at current levels comes after Democrats and Republicans blocked each others’ efforts in December over a provision in an omnibus spending bill to fund government through December, the last sitting in the spring. The new budget and debt limit increases are the first time since 1990 that the budget process would run through a conference committee as opposed to another committee, so the cuts could not be change
