WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is threatening a presidential veto of a Senate Republican measure that would give President Barack Obama more authority and flexibility to find $85 billion in spending cuts this year. The measure is intended to replace the automatic across-the-board cuts scheduled to kick in Friday.
The White House says it instead backs a Democratic measure to replace the cuts with tax hikes on millionaires and spending reductions over 10 years.
So more flexibility isn’t what he wants, hum. I guess those terrible cuts will take place. I say cut away. It’s all politics anyway.
