Supports proposed $100 billion in spending cuts in the fiscal year (FY) 2011 Continuing Resolution (CR) bill. The cuts include several measures that have been previously published at least in part in CAGW’s Prime Cuts database, a list of 763 waste-cutting recommendations that would save taxpayers $350 billion in the first year and $2.2 trillion over five years.

The Senate will vote on the Fiscal Year Disaster Assistance Supplemental (summary), which is an “emergency spending” bill intended for disaster assistance for Hurricane Sandy relief (housed in HR 1). While Hurricane Sandy was a major disaster, the majority of the funds being requested are being spent beyond FY 2014, and much of the funding goes toward superfluous programs that have no direct relation to Hurricane Sandy. President Obama’s administration has proposed $60.4 billion of spending, 64 percent of which will not be spent for 22 months. In fact, some of the spending will not be complete until 2022 and beyond. This long timeline is an indication that a massive amount of spending has nothing to do with the “emergency” of helping Hurricane Sandy victims. The request contains spending for future disaster programs as well as funds to repair and replace federal assets and for various other projects. For example, of the $5.35 billion requested for the Corps of Engineers, just $1.838 billion – or 34% – is for “disaster recovery.” The remaining $3.512 billion is for mitigation efforts, which the Obama administration request says would be used to address “impacts associated with a changing climate.” Heritage’s Matt Mayer contends that not only is there too much spending in this current disaster aid request, but there are a number of items being packed into the Hurricane Sandy appropriations proposal that should rightfully be considered with more care in the upcoming budget. Mayer explains : Roughly $3 billion of the $60.4 billion request is for federal departments and agencies to repair or replace federal assets. Like disaster-mitigation funding requests, all requests for funding for federal departments and agencies that does not flow to states, localities, businesses, or citizens for response and recovery activities should not be included in this supplemental request; rather, those items should be placed in the upcoming budget after a more thorough analysis and prioritization of those funding requests. The proposal “vividly illustrates the problems with the federal government’s and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) current approach to natural disasters.” Absent unnecessary items, the request would be roughly $12.8 billion, which could be easily offset. Simply put, President Obama’s disaster aid request is “act of willful fiscal negligence.” Heritage Action opposes the Sandy Supplemental and will include it as a key vote on our scorecard.

The brutal cuts proposed by H.R. 1 will not save money! They will cost money by shifting costs to future budgets ... by which time the problems caused by these cuts will have multiplied the costs many times over! For example, the proposed cuts to Housing and Urban Development will affect budgets already cut to the bone threatening to place 100s of thousands of America's most vulnerable people at risk of homelessness which destroys families, communities, economies and budgets.

The House budget cuts all Title X funding – the only federal program devoted to funding family planning services. * Title X gives grants to clinics to provide comprehensive family planning services to people who can’t otherwise afford them, such as services like counseling, contraceptives, health education, STI testing, and preventative health screenings. * Title X clinics serve millions of Americans and are often the only source of reproductive health care for people with low incomes. * The House has also passed an amendment to the Title X defunding budget that is specifically aimed at destroying Planned Parenthood. This amendment bars any federal funds from going to organizations that provide abortions even with their own dollars. Again, this law is specifically targeted at Planned Parenthood and would have devastating effects on their clinics.

We oppose cuts in education funding as passed by the House in H.R. 1, and ask that the Senate 1) restore $180 million to the Math & Science Partnership Program at the Department of Education; 2) restore $166 million to the NSF Education and Human Resources directorate; 3) restore Title I funding of $693 million (if cut, services reduced or eliminated for 957,000 thousand high-risk children and potentially causing the loss of over 9,000 education jobs); 4) restore funding of $557 million in state grants to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), providing key federal support to the costs of educating 324,000 students with disabilities and saving over 7,000 education jobs; 5) and restore $5.6 billion in Pell grants enabling low- and middle-income families to pay for educating 1.5 million college students.

The cuts to services from women and families . . .

AAUW opposesed Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011 (H.R. 1) because its drastic spending cuts would hurt ordinary Americans and have a lasting, detrimental impact on America’s economy. This bill targeted several successful programs for elimination, includingthose that help children remain and succeed in school, assiststudents pursuing higher education, encourage unemployed workers to enroll in job training, enable access to affordable health services, support older adults and their family caregivers, and protect workers against sex discrimination, pay discrimination, and pregnancy discrimination.
