Here are some of the programs so far defunded by House Republicans:
They did, however, vote to continue sponsoring NASCAR cars. So there's that. And tax loopholes for oil companies.
- Voted to strip funding from just about every EPA project, including air quality, emissions, and water pollution monitoring.
- Defunded NOAA
- Stripped funds to administer the Affordable Care Act.
- Eliminated funds for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
- Continued $53 billion in oil subsidies
- Tried to eliminate Davis-Bacon rules for government projects (that failed)
- Stripped federal workers of their salaries in positions within agencies targeted for defunding
