Skip to comments.Make cuts hurt: email reveals
Posted on 03/06/2013 8:17:04 AM PST by EyeSalveRich
A leaked email from an Agriculture Department field officer adds fuel to claims President Obama's political strategy is to make the billions in recent federal budget cuts as painful as possible to win the public opinion battle against Republicans. ...According to the partially redacted email, the response came from the Agriculture Departments budget office and in part states: However you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.

Unfortunately, the left has perfectly Alinsky’ed Fox. If it is reported on Fox, low information voters never hear it, and moderate information voters think it’s garbage.
Until/unless we find a leader and unite, we’re doomed.
I thought everyone was for reduced government spending?
>>Earlier I said, “The problem is that they go out of their way to make sure that any cuts happen in the most high-profile, painful places, while leaving fat in place. That way they are assured to continue their treachery.” <<
Yep. Close and shutter the DOE (both of them: Education and Energy), the EPA, 1/2 of the NIH and 100% of the new “agencies” obozo created. Billions of dollars saved and the US would not even know they are gone.
Let the TSA go back being private and contract it at .50 on the dollar (or better). Better service and lower cost.
The government wants only one thing: GROWTH
The Prez is a real piece of work, and there is no doubt that the Machiavellian Prince would resort to any means to prop up his regime and achieve his ends.
I agree, apparently these people will stop at nothing including damaging the country and it’s people to keep from loosing....If they’ll do that, they’ll do anything.
You know... on the other hand if they make these so-called cuts really painful on the public we just might say:
Hey, let’s just forget about you guys providing those services, we’ll do without or maybe do it ourselves instead.
He's a piece of something, alright.
The command and communication bunkers of Obama's soldiers needs to be haked and archived for their eventual arrest and prosecution.
What they are doing falls squarely on RICO, treason, and conspiracy laws.
“The problem is that they go out of their way to make sure that any cuts happen in the most high-profile, painful places, while leaving fat in place. That way they are assured to continue their treachery.”
It is even more evil in nature than your statement. The fact is that Obama has the idealogy that he desires to cause as much pain for his subjects, in the hope that it will expand his power.
It is dictatorial in nature. Period.
There are some honorable government workers. (some)
What a horrible vile man, always knew he was, however everyone thinks he is a nice guy.
You know in the real world any manager who can’t cut 2% out of their budget would be fired. And yes, I realize it is not a real cut.
We need to wait til after the election to find out what we are going to be governed by.
Local school districts use the same tactic when confronted with a levy on the ballot. They threaten to cut bus service first. This will of course inconvenience nearly all parents.
We need to call their bluff and hold their feet to the fire on the budget choices they make.
I work for the FAA and yes we have got the warning e-mails and I’ve deleted them so I won’t response back as to how full of BS they are.
There are a lot of people here at work who just talk about the “mythical” cuts all day long instead of working.
I’ve tried to explain to them about baseline budgeting and there are no cuts but they just don’t want to listen. They think the higher ups wouldn’t lie to them about it.
They are talking now about firing the temp hires and special hires, just to get every one screaming at the GOP to quit the cutting.
Security came in the other day and escorted a couple of contractors out because they were fired on Mar 1.
There is a lot of waste in govt and I see it every day but no one gives a rats ass except for a very few.
Obama wants average working Americans to suffer so the government can use our money to pay off the idiots who elect Democrats... the denizens of cellpools like Detroit and Chicago’s South Side.
