The Washington Times reports that Obama has had some success cutting government programs he deems wasteful:
The administration says Congress accepted at least $6.9 billion of the $11.3 billion in discretionary spending cuts Mr. Obama proposed for the current fiscal year. An analysis by The Washington Times found that Mr. Obama was victorious in getting Congress to slash 24 programs and achieved some level of success in reducing nine other programs.
That’s great news. If he can find 114 more ways to cut $6.9 billion, he will have offset the entire cost of the stimulus!
