Heh heh. Seventeen percent of the budget (defense) is primed to suffer 50% of the spending cuts if sequestration actually happens. The generals and admirals are already screaming bloody murder about the long-term effect on American military readiness, and the cuts haven’t even happened yet.
Even the left-wing news media establishment, which has been licking Obama’s boots since at least 2004, can’t bring itself to ignore all those generals and admirals. So the typical Democratic voters, stupid and ignorant though they are, have finally been learning that their Emperor has no clothes.
But, according to the media, it’s all because Republicans wouldn’t raise taxes on the rich.
That’s a simple meme for the media that serves their interests (selling idiots to adertisers).
Best we’ll get out of this is the realization by the brighter voters that welfare comes at a cost. And we’ll only get that if the Republicans play this perfectly: howls from the R Senators over the military cuts, and wailing over “our hands are tied- the Dems insist on no other cuts” from the House Rs.
