A "nuanced spending freeze" = a JOKE

Congress and the President are utterly incapable of cutting federal spending.

"We have actually gone through very carefully and some agencies will be up, some agencies will be down, investments made in key areas balanced by reductions in others," an official said.

"So while there's an overall freeze it doesn't mean that every single program or every single agency is frozen. It's a more sophisticated and nuanced approach than that," the official added.
