The White House announced today a plan to freeze non-military, discretionary spending for the next three years but cautioned that it would not be an across-the-board chill. Rob Nabors, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the Obama administration has gone line by line through the budget to identify programs that are not working or a lower priority. Spending proposals for some programs will decrease while others increase. "The liberal criticisms will be somewhat muted when they actually see the details of what we are proposing," Nabors said. "Right now, people are all afraid their favorite program has been gutted."
