Members of the budget and appropriations committee met with leadership yesterday to iron out the topline spending figure for the coming fiscal year.  Once again, conservatives are demanding that Republicans keep their pledge to stick with the numbers in the Ryan budget, but appropriators are not budging one inch.  They want to overwrite last year’s Ryan budget with a new one that reflects the levels of spending in the Budget [Out of] Control Act.
