Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., wants to make sure that Republicans obey their 2010 campaign “Pledge to America.” So he’s pushing his mike,pence,pledge,to,americacolleagues in the House to cut $100 billion in spending as outlined in the Pledge, The Hill reports.

The spending plan unveiled by GOP leaders last week only trims $61 billion in spending, though.

Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers notes that the reduction is $100 billion if you compare it to President Barack Obama’s budget request last year.

But that doesn’t cut it, Pence says. “You never get a second chance at a first impression,” he says on Fox News. “I think it’s very important the Republican majority start out with the American people by keeping our word to reduce spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels and save at least $100 billion in this first round.”
