The author of the Sequester, President Hopenchange, is busy crying big girly crocodile tears (between golf rounds) over the upcoming Sequester that will be the first real cuts in government spending in 20 years! He and his propagandist henchmen in the mainstream media are busy pinning the Sequester on the wussypants Republicans. As if the Republicans could come up with anything that even resembles spending cuts!
But that is what the Sequester is…a resemblance of spending cuts. The Sequester doesn’t cut real spending…only the rate of spending increases already programmed into the well-oiled, federal spending machine. The nasty little secret Washington doesn’t want you to know is that the federal budget increases automatically by 3-4% every year! They have created a monster that grows bigger and uglier every year and requires more to be fed. Its only a 3% reduction in the spending already planned! Well, BFD!
The Pentagon notified its 800,000 civilian workers that they would be furloughed because of the Sequester. What is amazing to me is that nearly 1 out of every 330 American civilians works for the Pentagon! What the hell do these people do other than consume a tremendous amount of tax dollars!?! The Sequester will not touch active duty military personnel. Furlough them sumbitches!
In fact, military spending won’t fall below 2007 levels under the Sequester. 2007 levels represent a 75% increase over pre-9/11 military spending. With a $17 trillion national debt (and growing rapidly), America can certainly do with defense spending cuts! Let South Korea, Germany, Japan, Israel and everyone else fight their own damn wars or pay us to cover their asses!
The Sequester only cuts $85 billion from the planned spending in 2013. Obama doesn’t mind cuts to defense but he absolutely hates the cuts that will take place for the moocher class in America. His people.
The Hill reports:
Already the White House warns that the cuts will reduce loan guarantees to small businesses, end Head Start funding for 70,000 children and leave 373,000 seriously mentally ill people without treatment.
It says there will be fewer food inspections, raising the potential for a food-borne illness outbreak, and that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will need to eliminate grants for firefighters and emergency personnel.
Well, boo-freaking-hoo! It’s about time is all I can say! Why not get some of those
illegal aliens pre-Democrats off of welfare and social services? And why not cut off a bunch of food stamps for the rest of the moochers out there living large on tax dollars taken from workers? The Sequester, albeit a small, symbolic cut in the rate of spending growth, should be just a start to the real (huge) cuts that need to take place!
This would be a perfect time for the wussypants Republicans to grow a testicle or two and 1. remind Americans that the Sequester was Obama’s idea and 2. tell them that the Sequester is going to happen and there will be a lot more spending cuts (actual spending cuts) on the near horizon! After all, Obama got his $600 billion in tax increases. Now it’s time for the sacred cows of moochering to be slaughtered!
The national debt is the real danger to America and our defense! Printing and borrowing money leads only to inflation and disaster. Anyone noticed the jump in gas prices over the past month? Is it a stretch to blame the $85 billion printed by the Fed and Bernanke on the increase in fuel costs?
America will take our medicine one way or the other. We will cut out the sugar-daddy government welfare services or the entire economic system will collapse! After all, it is entitlements that make up the lion’s share of our spending. The economic malfeasance thrust on this country by decades of corruptocrats makes one wonder if the destruction of America wasn’t planned all along! Destroying America is the only thing Washington does well!
AWD says take the Sequester and multiply it! Cut defense to real defense! Not protecting the Muslim Brotherhood or anyone else. Turn the millions of wealth-sucking federal workers into private sector producers! Get the federal leviathan out of our way and Americans will do what we do better than any country in the world….produce wealth! The government is the enemy and must be chopped down in size, scope and expense.
Obama never intended on spending cuts taking place. He only wanted tax increases, which he got. Now it’s time for Obama to live up to his own Sequester! He can borrow some Kleenex from John “Boo Hoo” Boehner!
