House Votes to Cut Homeland Security Funding

The House of Representatives has voted to cut more than a billion dollars from next year's Department of Homeland Security budget as part of its deficit reduction plan.

The Republican-held House voted 231 to 188 to cut the fiscal 2012 budget by $1.1 billion to $40.6 billion. The fiscal 2011 DHS budget was $47 billion plus.


  1. The House of Reprehensibles ought to have eliminated the entire department. In doing so it could have been $41.7 billion closer to eliminating the deficit.

  2. A billion?

    What's that, a couple of toilet seats and a few hammers?

    Drat, now the terrorists are sure to win.

  3. I know I'm naive but they should be voting to defund and end it (dammit).
