Republican Proposed Budget Cuts

Quote from the site: "The first column of numbers are the funding levels of Congress decided not to change anything. The second are the cuts, expressed as a percent of total annual funding, in the GOP's proposal. The third column are those same cuts, but with the percentage adjusted because the cuts have to be implemented over a few months rather than a full year."
