How @realDonaldTrump plans to stop the spending of the $1,000,000,000,000 #Omnibus #4Dchess #Timeless 1/
What if @potus could send spending cuts he wants to be voted on to Congress? What if those cuts could be passed with a simple majority in the House and Senate?

Meet what is called a #rescissionbill
The Rescission Bill was last invoked in 2000 by President Bill Clinton.

Since 1974, ##cuts were submitted 1178 times and approved by Congress 461 times.

Why did something that was such a common practice become obsolete?!
The Office of Management and Budget led by Trump-confidant Mic Mulvaney, can send recommendation of budget cuts to the House.

Upon receiving the rescission, the House has 45 days to act and pass a vote.
On the day that the OMNIBUS Spending Bill, President Trump wrote a letter to Speaker of the House.…
“ I hereby designate as an emergency requirement all funding so designated by the Congress...”

By invoking the Balance Budget Act of 1985, @realDonaldTrump took allocation power of the recently signed OMNIBUS Bill.
In April, NBC reported that President Trump was considering using the Rescission Bill of 1974 to propose cuts to the passed OMNIBUS Bill.…
5/6/18 House Majority Leader, @GOPLeader told @MariaBartiromo on @SundayFutures that the House could resend some unnecessary spending if suggested by the OMB.

This is all now unfolding.
With the authority to send spending cut requests to Congress and the power to appropriate or slow-walk funds, @POTUS has all the leverage.

With a Republican House and Senate, he can finally slash unnecessary Federal spending without the threat of a government shutdown. #Trumped
