Consequences if the Boehner plan were to pass

The Economic Policy Institute points out that Boehner’s proposal would cut the non-defense discretionary (NDD) budget by about 18% in 2021.

What is “Non-Defense Discretionary” spending?  Here is a chart.  If the Republicans get their way, the items on this chart, like Education, health research, law enforcement, flood control, and so on will be cut 18%.  Is that what you want?  I don’t.
