House Republicans release 2018 budget blueprint, which would slash social programs

Republicans are proposing a $4 trillion budget for 2018.

The House Budget Committee released a blueprint of its budget resolution today and plans to debate the bill and any amendments to it on Wednesday.

Also, the resolution projects savings based on an assumption that Congress will pass the American Health Care Act, the House version of Republicans' repeal-and-replace health care bill.

Budget resolutions are nonbinding. It is possible lawmakers will appropriate spending at different levels even if they pass a resolution resembling this plan. Conservatives in the House say they want deeper cuts.
