President Trump and the Impoundment Control Act of 1974

Some of the links on our site maybe from our sponsors.

In a public announcement made by President Trump, he confirmed that he decided to remove all the uneconomical spending such as gender and democracy plans.

This bill is known as the Impoundment Control Act of 1974 which aims to provide increase payments to individuals and more budget will be allotted to the American people.

President Trump explained the provisions under the bill. He said the president has the power to revoke any budget allotted to unnecessary programs.

He added and highlighted that in this bill, the Congress should remove all the costly and irrelevant items. He challenged the old Congress to get rid of all the budget before the installation of the new Congress.

The Conservative US reported that the president only wants to reduce the money spent on a specific purpose. Anyone behind these programs should first seek the approval of Congress when it comes to the waived funding of the said programs.

The Impoundment Control Act of 1974 allows the president of the US to advise the Congress what are the amounts of a fund to be deducted, the reasons behind the cancellation, and the effects of these on the economy.

Once the message of the President has been communicated, it will take 45 session days in Congress. If in case it has not acted upon 45 days, the funds will be made available.

The members of Congress who will not act within 45 days will be getting a negative impact. Those members who will soon be replaced will be obliged to act.

The Congress now is forced to act on ICA because a new Congress will soon be welcomed. There is a higher chance that there will be two new elected leaders of the House and Senate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is an example, as she might be removed from her current position.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) who is a proud Democratic socialist, is very vocal that she will not support Pelosi if the speaker will run again for the position since Pelosi is short-sighted and corrupt

Many people commended the move of President Trump, as they believe that the president is very committed to his “America First” mission.
