Cuts, Consolidations, and Savings: Budget of the U.S. Government, Fiscal Year 2014   [open pdf - 199KB]

From the Document: "Whether the Budget is in surplus or deficit, wasting taxpayer dollars on programs that are outdated, ineffective, or duplicative is wrong. Given the current fiscal environment, it is critical that we redouble our efforts to scour the Budget for waste and make tough decisions about reducing funding for or ending programs that are laudable, but not essential. This exercise is difficult but necessary, and it builds on efforts the Administration has undertaken since the President first took office. […] In each of the President's first three Budgets, he identified, on average, more than 150 terminations, reductions, and savings proposals, totaling nearly $25 billion each year. In last year's Budget, the Administration detailed 210 cuts, consolidations, and savings proposals, totaling more than $24 billion in 2013. This year, the Budget includes a total of 215 cuts, consolidations, and savings proposals, which are projected to save more than $25 billion in 2014, and $539 billion through 2023."
