The Republican Budget Resolution that will be on the House Floor this week would slash funding for crucial domestic priorities in virtually every area – education, veterans’ health care, the environment and research, to name a few – to pay for the President’s $1.4 trillion tax plan.

Cuts to mandatory spending would total $470 billion over the next decade if Republicans enact a $400 billion prescription drug plan.
