Trump reveals plan that forces Congress to re-examine 'wasteful spending,' boost stimulus payments

The law essentially allows the president to request that Congress rescind appropriated budget funds.

The act was passed in response to Richard Nixon's budget abuses in which he outright refused funding for government programs that he opposed.

The act, then, means Congress can reject the president's rescission request, as it has done in most instances since the law was passed.

Will Congress bite?

As TheBlaze reported, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers are pushing for $2,000 stimulus payments — and they hope to approve such economic relief quickly.

However, House Democrats are much less likely to approve Trump's line-item requests to eliminate "wasteful spending."
