White House to Propose $20 Billion More in U.S. Budget Cuts

Democrats and the White House are prepared to offer congressional Republicans an additional $20 billion in cuts to help reach a deal on a 2011 budget, according to three people familiar with the negotiations.

The offer, on top of $10 billion in spending reductions already approved by Congress, would make up about half of the $61 billion Republicans want to cut by Sept. 30, when the spending year ends.
