The House recently passed a budget and ended the sequester cuts that under current law would extend into 2023. How much does this bill increase spending in the next two years? (in actual dollars and as a percentage of the budget)
Per this summary:
The deal caps the federal government's spending for Fiscal Year 2014 at $1.012 trillion and for Fiscal Year 2015 at $1.014
According to Wikipedia, the government's 2013 discretionary spending (which is the comparable number) was $1.264 trillion, so this represents an ~20% decrease in federal spending.
