    Well, repeating it until the morons catch on DOES seem a bit futile …

    The sequester is meant to get us out of our “debt hole”. The idea is good, the implementation is not. There are many who believe the untargeted and nonspecific cuts will allow waste and abuse to continue while doing harm in other ways. There are contractors preparing to sue the gov’t if projects for which contracts have been written are delayed or put off because of the sequester. It’s not going to only effect poor people and schools. Legislators are going through papers looking for ways to save projects for their districts back home. It’s a stupid way to run a nation.
    Frustratedly,

    @Mr. King

    “Anything that benefits someone besides me and mine” would be the most likely definition.

    You and Respectful Troll are both right, my only critizim is that it is way more then ten percent. With redundant agency’s it is more like a thrid but those people are voters.

    Or we could just freeze spending at its current level we would start bringing in more money then we spend by 2017 or 18.

    During a recent blizzard in Washington, D.C. all non-essential government employees were ordered to stay home. 157 individual reported for work that day.

    @jack75287

    Why do we need multiple law enforcement agences with overlapping functions, i.e., DEA, ATF, FBI, etc.?

    Ok first no I meant government spending not wage but thank you for bringing it up. The average federal worker makes 1.5 more than his public counterpart so that would be a good idea for a few years, after all it is the taxpayers money.

    As for being an advocate of not cutting anything that hurts me personally name one instance I could have given you that impression. IN OTHER WORDS STOP LYING.


    Also don’t know where you got your facts but welfare is more than 6.7%.
    Food and Agriculture is 4%
    Veterans Benefits is 4%
    Housing and Comunity is 2%
    Social Security unemployment and labor is 34%
    Medicare and Health is 24%
    Military is 18%.
