I understand your points, but sequestration is happening because we simply can’t afford to pay for it anymore. No reason I should work my arse off to maintain a military with no more sense of purpose, being sent overseas to try to re-make cultures thousands of years old, while I drive on streets resembling the main drag in Mogadishu while shedding the services my taxes used to pay for. What exactly is our military’s purpose in this “fundamentally changed” America?
The countries broke; NJ has laid of thousands of employees, and the feds have to do the same.
To start with, it is Obama's to own because his OMB Director Jack Lew proposed it. BUT, the Republicans overwhelmingly supported for it and voted for it. Secondly, the formula punishes the military with 50% of all cuts, but EXEMPTS entitlements, which are exploding and are the real causes of out debt and deficit. Thirdly, military pay and most contracts are off limits [and this will include the homosexual human toilets who call themselves "spouses" now]. That means that Operations and Maintenance money takes the brunt of the cuts......the life blood of the military. Sequestration inordinately punishes the loyal military patriots, harms the defense industry, devastates DoD civilians via furloughs, but rewards the takers: Food Stamps, EITC, TANF, Section 8, ObamaCare, you name it......EXEMPT from Sequestration.
On front line defense? For 80 billion dollars of a sequestration, we lay fallow Our Front Line Defenses? Do you have any idea, of what these gay humpings, are to cost Our Country? What’s your deal?
