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.
You're buying into the left's definition of a 'cut'. That is precisely the redefinition of language which has given Congress the cover to expand the size of the feral government for generations now. Career leftists like Obama have used this trick for decades to fool the American people into supporting their advance of Socialism.
If you were expecting a dollar an hour pay raise, and you only got a .98 cents an hour raise, it would be the same thing as the so-called sequester. Are you telling me that .16 cents a day is going to be a catastrophic hit to your personal economy? I highly doubt it.
Friend, our government is already vastly overfunded. Congress could freeze funding levels at their current levels and there would be no noticeable effect for years to come, besides the wailing and gnashing of teeth on Capitol Hill and in the media, and perhaps a gradual slimming down of federal departments and agencies.
You cannot have limited government as envisioned by the Framers, with the federal government taking as big a bite out of the GDP as it is today. You do realize the government now takes more out of the GDP than it did during the second world war, do you not? Look it up. That rate of increase has outpaced inflation.
