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.

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.

I’m for the repealing of laws that authorize this big government. repeal the laws that authorize the EPA, repeal Obamacare and so on. If we elimninate just one government agency the EPA the economy will expand. repeat for other gov agencies. I don’t see anyone saying this not any politicians , not Rush , not Levin , not commentators of course never the news media. but that’s what needs to be done. concentrating on the dollar ammounts that are inflated etc. is not as effective as repealing laws. laws are the problem . every day more laws which cause more regulations and agencies

that being said sequester is still a good thing and GOP and boner must not cave , let the cuts happen
