There is plenty of American money around, just not for Americans.

Bad Management,
Is a good reason to trim the government, next fire excess employees and programs then return authority to the states while they figure it out.

The military will be just fine. Try retiring a few Generals & Admirals- do we really need 1 Admiral for every ship in the Navy?

How about getting rid of the $50 billion scheduled to be given away in foreign aid?

There's plenty of money.

Or we could cut the billions in welfare to the oil companies who are making record profits again this year.

Lots of money to go around.

Capitol official: Obama wrong about janitors. Obama lies again spreading fear to many parts of America while he flies in circles and plays golf.

By KATE NOCERA | 3/1/13 7:45 PM EST
The Superintendent of Capitol tried to assure staff on Friday that employees will not receive a cut in pay as a result of sequestration, despite President Barack Obama’s claims to the contrary.
In a news conference earlier in the day, Obama warned that starting on Saturday “the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol” and “the janitors, the security guards” would face a pay cut. But in a letter to supervisors and building staff, obtained by POLITICO, superintendent Carlos Elias said “the current sequestration plan does NOT include ‘Reductions in Force’ or Furloughs. The pay and benefits of employees WILL NOT be impacted as per out current plan.”

Obama's SEQUESTER Friends will be paid anyway.
It could be a lay-off with pay, for them.
The 2,000 illegal criminals will just be gravy for civil chaos.
