  • Thanks to our friends in the GOP...

    Thanks to Republican obstructionism in Congress, the nation
    was forced into the sequester last Friday -- a series of
    automatic and destructive budgets cuts that you and your
    neighbors are just beginning to feel.

    In the face of these devastating cuts, House Speaker John
    Boehner went on TV and said, "I don't know whether it's
    going to hurt the economy or not ... I don't think anyone
    quite understands how the sequester is really going to work."

    Really? We're not talking about some abstract numbers on a
    piece of paper -- this is real.

    The sequester will cut 10,000 teaching jobs, 70,000 spots
    for preschoolers in Head Start, $43 million for food
    programs for seniors, $35 million for local fire
    departments, and access to nutrition assistance for over
    half a million women and their families.

    And the reason congressional Republicans let these cuts go
    into effect is because they simply wouldn't support closing
    tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires -- for
    things like yachts and corporate jets.

    Food for thought...for those who aren't afraid to think for themselves...

    Per the terms of the bill that Obama signed, Obama himself had to pick the areas to cut, excepting that one half of the cuts came from military budgets.

    In light of the actual fact that it is Obama that picks the areas to cut, why do you blame the Republicans?  In the light of the fact that it is Obama that has chosen those programs to cut, why are you blaming the Republicans?


    Why don't you tell us the blog you stole the piece from?  It looks like mbd.scout.com.  Are you afraid to think for yourself?

    Now for the rest of the story....

     

    If Obama's sequester is painful, it's solely due to him. Period.

    Per the email below, cuts are meant to be painful to rally support agaisnt republicans.

    Want more proof? How much foriegn aid have we suspended for budget reasons? Like to Egypt?

      MOSTLY FALSE: "There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips" because of sequestration. Arne Duncan on Sunday, February 24th, 2013 in an appearance on "Face the Nation."

       

      MOSTLY FALSE: Due to the sequester, "people are going to be unsafe. Homes are going to burn." Ami Bera on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 in a House floor speech

       

      HALF TRUE"tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids." - Barack Obama on Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 in a speech in Washington, D.C.

        whew, thank god it's only americans that have to suffer, that's a relief...at least we can still give 250 million to the muslim brotherhood in egypt - http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/03/us/us-egypt - and i was afraid we were going to put our preschoolers in front of the 60 million to the syrian rebels for a moment - http://www.thejournal.ie/john-kerry-syria-rebels-aid-813609-Feb2013/ - and heck, the seniors are really just a drain on the economy anyway, so it's probably better to spend 50 million on new tsa uniforms anyway - http://cnsnews.com/news/article/tsa-sealed-50-million-sequester-eve-deal-buy-new-uniforms.  god bless barak obama and both parties of our illustrious congress for the most transparent administration ever.  americans are so stupid they'll just wipe the spit out of their eyes and vote 90% back in...
