New report causing GOP confusion, and concern about defections
Source: cnn

Washington (CNN)- House Republican leaders, already facing GOP defections over a spending bill many think doesn't cut enough, are now scrambling to stem Republican concern that what it does cut is only a fraction of what's being advertised.

At issue is a new report from the Congressional Budget Office that says while the spending bill does cut roughly $38 billion, only a small part of that $352 million will be realized this year.

The discrepancy centers around the arcane difference between what's known as budget outlays, how quickly money is spent, and budget authority, how much agencies are allowed to spend on a given program.

House Speaker John Boehner admitted this has "caused some confusion" among rank and file Republicans.

most of the tea brats that were voting into office this past 2010 election does not know anything about how the government operates. Only what their masters have told them - " it's me me me and the corporations"

8. They neither understand nor respect how legislation works.
All they know is to stamp their feet and scream vile words.

That they want to see $38 Billion taken out of the economy in one year/quarter speaks volumes to their depravity.
