The Republican’s wanted Cut..Cuts…..and More CUTS….
Actually they wanted Entitlements like your Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid cut….
That’s Not happening…..
The Sequester that President Obama and his team cocked up and got Congress to agree to is here for a while….
It’s reported to be only $85 Billion , which is less then 3% of the US expected budget expenditures of $3.4 Trillion*……(The Sandy Relief Aid package ws $51 Billion)
The amount involved could be absorbed without a blip…..IF the PRESIDENT WANTED IT THAT WAY…..
The President has one upped the GOP and will initiate cuts is very PUBLIC places to apply pressure on the Republicans to grant tax increases on the Rich, something he has been trying to get since he was sworn into office in January 2009….
This budget theatre will go on for AT LEAST a month while the media hypes the consequences of the sequester and the President and the Republican’s wait for a blink….
The sad thing is this IS gonna exact a hurt on up to hundred of thousands of workers and the American economy if it goes on too long…..
Hell of a way to run a country, eh?
There have ALREADY been cuts in 2011 in Defense, Medicare and Medicaid spending*….Share on Facebook
