Obama's Phony Sequester OutrageThreatening public services while corporate fat cats sit on taxpayer money is offensive.
Sequester Not Stopping Feds From Posting Hundreds of Job Openings
Dow closes at all-time high, beating 2007 record. Should have started the sequester a long time ago.
1. The Cuts Are Tiny!
The actual cuts in fiscal year 2013 are only $44 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The rest don't even take place until 2014 or later. Whether you use $44 billion or $85 billion we're talking about 1 or 2 percent of total government spending.
2. Spending is Still Going Up!
Even with the sequester, the federal government is expected to spend more this year than it did last year. The government spent $3.5 trillion in 2012 and i expected to spend $3.6 trillion in 2013 (see Summary Table 1).
So, stuffit douchebag.
1-2% of the federal budget meas that for the balance of this fiscal year, those cuts need made, Since about half the year is passed, that means we are looking to cut 2-4%.
Now figure in all the stuff that is exempt from the sequester, that likely doubles again to 4-8%.
Plus there are contracts, leases, etc that can't be cut.
So now what are we are up to?
You right whiners are just dumber than sh*t.
