The Spending Reduction Act

The Spending Reduction Act

With the national debt now over $14 trillion, Congress must act swiftly to cut spending. That is why members of the RSC have proposed new legislation that would make substantial spending cuts immediately and throughout the next decade. The Spending Reduction Act of 2011, H.R. 408, is a $2.5 trillion head start in the race to resolve the growing debt crisis and preserve the American Dream. 

Companion legislation, S. 178, has been introduced in the Senate by Sen. Jim Demint (R-SC).
