Since the sequester was a cut in the increase, not a cut in the baseline spending, why is the FAA cutting $600 million dollars and blaming the furloughs on the sequester?
Did I miss something?
BTW, didn't Bob Woodward say that the sequester was Lew's idea and was jumped on by Obama?
What say you
When bureaucrats want to make an arguement against tax cuts, they don’t focus on their departments expenses that nobody can see, like coffee or travel budgets. They prioritize cuts on where tax payers notice first.
It’s our punishment for not pressuring out representatives to just do what Obie tells them. Tucson police did something similar, when we didn’t approve the sales tax they wanted our punishment was that they no longer respond to traffic accidents that don’t involve injury. Joke was on them though, now that you don’t have to wait for the cops or their report everything about getting in a minor accident goes faster.
Been thinking about this all week.
PHONY-EST. ADMINISTRATION. EVER.
Not slick like Willy. Phoney like Pravda.
To punish Americans and blame any opposition.
Meanwhile, $500 million for Egypt, $250 million for Syrian rebels, and who knows how much for Kosovo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and any number of moslem terrorist countries.
Obama is an expert at ‘playing dirty’. His aim is to make the people ‘feel pain’ and blame the republicans.
Because they can, and because you don't have a choice.
What should happen is....when they get back...they have to make up the hours they were paid for.
I have wondered the same thing.
To have an excuse to get rid of non-union personnel.
It’s blackmail. Gee, nice transportation business you got here. ‘Shame if something should happen to it.
great let’s shut down air farce 1, no need to go anywhere..that way we can have controllers to help folks who actually pay friggin bills..
Economic demagoguery. War on the taxpayer.
