212. part of "whose" strategy
because the same thing was happening in the Carter administration, authorizing 80 billion and spending 15 billion. Unless I get more information, it seems like housing advocates are playing the mathematical game. They are claiming a huge cut when there actually was not a huge cut. I have emailed them for an explanation, but right now I do not see that the cut to "budget authority" having a huge real world impact. It's not the same as a huge cut in the amount actually being spent, and that's the way it is being presented.
