The only reason the growth in government was slowed is the TEA Party.<quoted text>
HEY STUPID! Obama didn't come up with the idea of sequestration. Paul Ryan has been pushing for it since 2004 and in fact wrote the legislation. Boehner said that he got 98% of what he wanted in the deal. On what do you base your statement that the majority of Americans want deeper cuts? When polled on individual programs like Medicare, Social Security, Veterans programs and defense most Americans want them to get the same funding that they currently receive.
What freaking lavish galas are you talking about Carol? The White House schedule is posted on line and I haven't found anything that you can call a gala, lavish or otherwise. Obama's trips abroad have been on the nation's business like his latest trip to Africa. But I guess you like the rest of the right wing idiots on this thread would rather cede that continent with its strategically important resources to China.
If you really want to talk about wasting taxpayer dollars then how about those symbolic, going nowhere votes to repeal Obamacare? Every time they indulged in this foolishness it cost taxpayers almost $1.5 million for a total of approximately $53.8 million.
Who's hurting public servants Carol? The original stimulus package kept firefighter, police and teachers on the job and not one Republican voted for it. Since when have you been so concerned about public sector employees hypocrite? It's clear to anyone who has at least a couple of brain cells that communicate with each other that the GOP is responsible for the gridlock, not the President.
The so-called "sequestration" did not cut government spending. The government will spend more money this year than it spent last year. All the so-called "cuts" were lies. All that happened is money was taken from things like defense and education and redirected to increase the money for things like armed drones to bomb Americans and building a war machine in DHS to fight a war with the American people.
It's obvious what the priority and agenda of the Democrats are. They intend to take over the country, and fight a war with the American people if they don't just give it to them.
The only sane voice in DC is the TEA Party.
