It may not be great but if its the only way to get the federal budget to reduce then let it happen.

Dr. Benjamin Carson Lectures Obama on Health Care, Deficit, Taxes At Prayer Breakfast. Did you see Obama's stupid face? LOL
.
We should have made Dr. Carson our first black president instead of that overrated, stupid. numbskull, Obama.
.
He made a monkey out of Obama right to his face. It was unforgettable.

Like Benghazi.

" If the sequester goes into effect, the federal budget for this year will still be larger than last year’s ($3.553 trillion in 2013 vs.$3.538 trillion in 2012). With the sequester in effect, federal non-defense spending will still be 10 percent higher than it was in 2008. But Washington, led by Obama but with GOP help, is telling the American people that unless government gets an even bigger raise (with money borrowed from China, by the way), civilization will unravel, 911 calls will go unanswered, and Bane shall irrevocably seize control of Gotham.

The federal government has grown inexorably for decades. Our president casts himself as a Solomonic manager, and yet he is saying that absent a few extra pennies on every dollar, there’s no way he can maintain government’s core functions? A manager in any other field of human endeavor would be fired on the spot for making such an argument. But in Washington, this passes for leadership."
