ABSTRACT
The article discusses the proposal of several Republican House members for President Ronald Reagan to support a two-year freeze on all domestic spending across the board in order to reduce budget deficits in the United States. The Republicans argue that the 98th Congress will not pass domestic spending cuts of $25 billion. Several benefits of spending freeze include the shift of burden away from conservative cuts in spending.
