§683. Rescission of budget authority
(a) Transmittal of special message
Whenever the President determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is provided or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal policy or other reasons (including the termination of authorized projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), or whenever all or part of budget authority provided for only one fiscal year is to be reserved from obligation for such fiscal year, the President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message specifying—
(1) the amount of budget authority which he proposes to be rescinded or which is to be so reserved;
(2) any account, department, or establishment of the Government to which such budget authority is available for obligation, and the specific project or governmental functions involved;
(3) the reasons why the budget authority should be rescinded or is to be so reserved;
(4) to the maximum extent practicable, the estimated fiscal, economic, and budgetary effect of the proposed rescission or of the reservation; and
(5) all facts, circumstances, and considerations relating to or bearing upon the proposed rescission or the reservation and the decision to effect the proposed rescission or the reservation, and to the maximum extent practicable, the estimated effect of the proposed rescission or the reservation upon the objects, purposes, and programs for which the budget authority is provided.
(b) Requirement to make available for obligation
Any amount of budget authority proposed to be rescinded or that is to be reserved as set forth in such special message shall be made available for obligation unless, within the prescribed 45-day period, the Congress has completed action on a rescission bill rescinding all or part of the amount proposed to be rescinded or that is to be reserved. Funds made available for obligation under this procedure may not be proposed for rescission again.

Well, you can be as cynical as you want. You have my political views completely wrong though, like every other assumption you have made about me. However, unlike you, my viewpoints are documented on this very site over a time span of almost 13 years. And I am not, admittedly, very good at holding my tongue.
All of those lives have been jeopardized by every single President we have had in my lifetime. I would actually place Nixon, of all people, he of the Watergate fame, as the President who cost us less in human lives. Carter? He set up Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Reagan? A lot of little skirmishes and a lot of interference where we should have kept our big nose out of it. Bush 41? Yeah, there was that Desert Shield thing, plus the skirmish in Granada. Clinton? He kept things going in the Mideast. Bush 43? Oh, hell, there's you a warmonger! Obama? A lot of talk, and a lot of backing down, which led to the ISIS caliphate. Trump? I give him a 'C' at best so far on getting our military out of other people's business. We'll see how his administration works out.
The U.S created ISIS. When ISIS even came about they were bits and pieces of what remained from Al Queda.They had no weapons no money no one even knew who the hell ISIS was. Until they provided the weapon, funds and the training to ISIS forces.
When Obama backed out of the country after getting Osama Bin Laden the power vaccuum effect took place. (Also created by the U.S.)
Obummer ran his campaign on "getting Osama Bin Laden". And he did.
I provided you with another source where it was reported that Trump left all doors open on cuts to entitlement spending on SS and Medicare.
If i didn't know what I was talking about I wouldn't sit here and keep talking about a very real threat to everyone's primary source of living in the elderly community.
Not protecting the rights of the LGBTQ (as he ran his 2016 campaign on)
Withholding aid from Ukraine (even though most don't even agree with the aid) in exchange for a QPQ
Has done nothing to safe guard the American citizens against hate crimes
Has demonized and slandered minorities
Trump has also lied about people wanting guns to be banned. No progressive in the U.S wants a ban on guns that tarnishes what the 2nd ammendment prohibits. They are more focused on increasing the provisions that Americans follow the law and get permits for these weapons. Alt-lefties the only ones who wanna ban guns.
I could go on and on and on. And yet you still wouldn't get the message.
If you cared about change as a whole you wouldn't be supporting someone who signed against the bill that would have allowed a 50% cut on pharmaceutical prices (which he ran his 2016 campaign off of).
You can stay wanting the American people gettig dicked over but the rest of America is tired.

It says right in the area you quoted. Whenever a hold done, the president is to notify congress. That means when the executive decides to hold monies they are to notify congress. Not keep it secret and tell everyone to tell no one outside even though the laws says to notify congress.
You are confused about the fiscal year part. Its about budget money for things in a fiscal year being held and how the president can only put a hold on that one years budget and not all years. Not that he can hold a fiscals years budget and tell no one until the end of this fiscal year.
