I hate them so much, I hope the next meteor coming this way hits them. They are evil, they are anti American, and they serve the same function to America that cancer serves to the human body.
...Cuts in their increases!
And what freaking budget???
There hasn't been a budget in 4 years now!
A lousy 2% cut to a non-existent budget?
Cry me a feckin’ river!
Obama is threatening the public that the tiniest cut in out of control spending will cause calamities for the public. And it appears that he and his cabinet are doing all they can to cause as much pain as possible to the American public, should Obama’s plan actually go through.
It seems to me that this is in direct violation of the oath of office, especially if he PURPOSELY exposes the American public to danger, and deserving of impeachment.
Of course, that will never happen.
