US Rep. Guinta co-sponsors bill to rescind $45 billion in unspent federal money

“The money just sits there, doing nothing.  It’s wasteful, it’s totally unacceptable and it must stop now.”

(WASHINGTON – March 17, 2011)   Taxpayers would save $45 billion under a bill co-sponsored by U.S. Representative Frank Guinta (R/NH-01).  He added his name to the Decrease Spending Now Act (H.R. 1111).  It requires the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to rescind money from unobligated balances of discretionary appropriations and report to Congress and the Treasury Secretary on these efforts within 60 days.  Discretionary funds for the Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration would not be affected. 

“Most Americans don’t know it, but tens of billions of dollars are just sitting idly in government bank accounts,” Guinta explained.  “Congress appropriated that money, but the various departments and agencies never got around to directing where it should go.  So the money just sits there, doing nothing.  It’s wasteful, it’s totally unacceptable and it must stop now.”

Guinta noted the bill requires the White House’s Office of Management and Budget to report a plan to make these cuts.  “That would force the Administration to finally come off the sidelines and get into the spending cut game.”

Guinta went on to say the fact that such a large amount of money can sit untouched in the bank is further evidence that the federal government is living beyond its means. “This reveals that Washington can clearly get by on a much smaller budget.  I not only want to change the way Washington does business, but I want to change how it handles the money that you –the taxpayer- send it.  This bill, combined with further rounds of deep, across the board cuts in spending, will put us back on the road to fiscal solvency and prosperity.”

US Rep. Frank Guinta statement on House passage of a short-term stopgap spending bill 

“$10 billion in real-time cuts is the largest reduction in discretionary spending in American history.  And we’re just getting started.”

(Washington – March 15, 2011)    Rep. Frank Guinta (NH-01) released the following statement on today’s passage of H.J.R. 48, FY 2011 Further Continuing Appropriations Amendments:

“This bill shaves an additional $6 billion off the record high deficit.  It stays on pace for our goal of cutting $2 billion a week, each week, for the rest of this year.  Best of all, the $6 billion cut in this bill, coupled with the $4 billion cut in the short-term continuing resolution we passed two weeks ago, represents a milestone.  The $10 billion in real-time cuts is the largest reduction in discretionary spending in American history.  And we’re just getting started.

“Today’s vote was just one battle in the long war to hack the $1.5 trillion deficit down to size.  Many more battles lie ahead, and they will come soon.  This vote isn’t the end of our fight; in fact, we’re just getting warmed up.     

“It’s important to remember that we got in this situation due to decades of spending beyond our means.  The damage can’t be corrected in one step.  House Republicans got the process started by acting responsibly last month and passing a bill that would have funded the government through September while also cutting $61 billion in spending.   But the Senate rejected it.  We are in the current fiscal limbo because Senate liberals turned a deaf ear to the desires of the American people and fought to keep the red ink flowing.  Despite their resistance, my Republican colleagues and I are staying true to our beliefs and are producing the very first real-time spending cuts in American history.  My gloves remain on for Round 3 on April 8th.”
