(FeaturedNews.com) – The House GOP pushed to defund many different offices of the Biden administration by including many amendments to a government funding bill.
The Financial Services and General Government fiscal year 2024 appropriations, which includes the funding that will be allocated to the executive office of the president and the Treasury is going to be examined this week. House Republicans viewed the appropriation bill as a way of forcing the Biden administration to push key progressive policy points.
Rep. Mike Collins, R-Ga., submitted an amendment that specifically aimed to block the funding that would be allocated to the office of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Many of the other amendments offered were targeting funding that would go to the White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention, while Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., also put forward a proposal that would set the salary of Daniel Werfel, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner to $1.
Other cuts proposed by the GOP included cuts to the offices of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (ODEIA) in the Biden administration.
Rep. Russell Fry, R-S.C., also put forward an amendment that would cut the funding of the Treasury’s Climate Hub, an office that solely works on the strategy followed regarding climate change.
The House GOP has vowed to pass 12 individual spending bills, each one of which is going to be focused on a specific part of the federal government.
Unfortunately for Mike Collins, most republicans voted against the amendment.
