A Good Start From Obama!

Hey....he gets the props, too.

The Obama administration wants federal agencies to save money while Republicans push for additional savings to take a substantial bite out of the government’s towering pile of IOUs.

...White House budget chief Jacob Lew has ordered agency heads to submit spending plans for the upcoming budget at least 5 percent below this year’s levels. He also wants them to propose ways to trim a total of at least 10 percent of their spending.

What is significant is the "below THIS year's levels."  That would seem to mean that they will not get away with the old "less than budgeted increases" game.
