More Obama Sequester Lies

Socialist President Obama continues to blame Republicans for the indiscriminate cuts required by the Sequester.  OK, so Obama is required to cut $85 billion in the next 12 months, out of about $3.7 trillion in spending, roughly 2% of spending, really peanuts.   Supposedly, these cuts are non discretionary, except that the Republicans attempted to give the President the authority to pick and choose between all the waste, fraud, abuse and redundant programs, agencies, commissions and departments of the federal government to cut this spending.  

In business, a 2% cut would be no big deal and easy to accomplish by looking at every department of a company and cutting fat.   This Blogger has made cuts far deeper than just 2%, in any given year and life went on just fine.  Socialist President Obama declined the authority because he would rather make these cuts as painful as possible on the American people.  After Congress passed a law, with bi partisan support, to stop the furloughs of air traffic controllers and security staff because it was causing chaos at our airports,  Obama had to back off. 

It is time for Obama to do his job and cut the fat in our government.   Of course, even though $85 billion in cuts is chump change in Washington DC, Obama will not do it because he would rather make life miserable for the Makers in society, than take anything away from his PEEP's.   Obama could start by taking away the free cell phones from his PEEP's that cost $2.2 billion a year.   Come on Mr. President, please stop being a whiny Man/Child and do your job.
