Obama and Sequestration
Posted by madjillmom on February 26, 2013
Obama wants it to hurt. If it doesn’t hurt, you might realize that smaller government isn’t a bad thing. He wants these tiny cuts to come out of the hide of the Republicans. He wants us to eat bad meat, stand in TSA lines, fight our own fires, etc. The less than 2% cuts are going to feel really bad. Libraries will be shut down, parks will be closed, employees will be furloughed. Yet, the US government will spend more this year than last, so there are no real cuts.
The analogy is the 2% cut all working people took at the beginning of this year. All workers saw their paychecks cut by the 2% that goes into Social Security. So now, all our families are dealing with this cut. You could cut out a few of the movies you go to each month. You could not eat out as much. You could use coupons, cancel HBO/Showtime, color your own hair, or mow your own grass. Or you could stop paying your mortgage, house insurance, electricity, and property taxes. This is the way Obama is going about it. The increase in the price of gas is also a great cut to the budgets of every family.
The MSM will let Obama make this ugly. The only group really hurt by sequester will be the military. The military budget has already been cut by 500 billion.
Someone cut Agency Conferences in Las Vegas. Someone cut idiotic Diversity programs and seminars. Someone cut Obamaphones. Someone cut subsidies to electric car battery companies in Belgium. Someone cut the pay of congress, and the entire overpopulated executive branch. Someone might stop hiring people that work in government.
