Rescissions Coming?

House Majority Leader Roy Blunt (R.-Mo.) told HUMAN EVENTS Political Editor John Gizzi he had ?¢â??¬???talked twice to the White House?¢â??¬  about putting together a package of rescissions from previously appropriated spending. Blunt said he told the White House ?¢â??¬???there must be some balance between what you want to do and we want to do.?¢â??¬  The majority leader said he anticipated a list of rescissions to come from the White House by Thanksgiving.

At a subsequent White House briefing, Gizzi shared Blunt?¢â??¬â??¢s comments with White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan and asked if the list of rescissions would be sent to Congress. ?¢â??¬???We continue to discuss a lot of ways to cut spending and save money,?¢â??¬  said McClellan, confirming that Blunt had met with the President earlier in the week and that they had a ?¢â??¬???good discussion?¢â??¬  about ways to cut spending.
