Official: Obama wants agency spending cut by $100M   STEVEN R. HURST - 4/20/2009.  OneNewsNow.com

President Barack Obama convenes his first formal Cabinet meeting Mondayand will ask department and agency chiefs to look for ways over the next 90 days to cut $100 million out of the federal budget, a senior administration official said.  The federal deficit for March alone was $192.3 billion, and $100million would represent about one-twentieth of 1 percent of that. Obama has brought forward a $3.6 trillion budget for the 2010 fiscal year, beginning Oct. 1, a proposal that would produce $9.3 trillion in deficits over the next decade.
