Federal IT Spending Slashed?
Perhaps the headline writer should be faulted instead of the author, but a 2.9% cut is scarcely a 'slashing' of the budget, particularly when the cost of a lot of things in IT keeps going down. 

But then again, this is the gubmint, and they never seem to be able to make do with less of anything (except defense).
