Sorry, but the big bad sequester isn't going to 'cut' a single dime of federal spending.
This entire ruckus is over a mere 2% reduction in the rate of INCREASE of projected federal spending. No one in the country is going to feel its impact. All this talk of furloughing gov't workers, cutting military spending, catastrophic effects to existing entitlement programs, etcetera, is just a huge stinking pile of obama.
The federal government is going to spend more next year than they did this year - just like every year since Hector was a pup. The poor dears in Washington are only going to get 98% of the raise they were expecting for their departments and agencies.
Oh my! The world will end!!!
are you counting in inflation too, or do you have all the calculations done for all the government too?
to keep the same size government has to increase by the inflation rate. if it doesn’t then it is a cut.
sequester is a good thing. let it happen.
without sequester gov growth will be what 20% next year? yes
so GOP and boner must not cave ( let the cuts happen)
All I hear is government will be cut in a lot of places. If government will be cut ANYWhwere with this sequester then that is the first time and it is the a good thing.
