    When sequestration comes Betty


    Lets hope it does hit - we'll be cutting across the board. Social programs included. And we'll know that "Gee we can cut entitlement programs, and nothing goes wrong." As usual you didn't think it through did you Betty? I'm betting the Republicans did. They're going to give Obama exactly what he asked for months ago - sequestration - across the board automatic cuts.

    A thing of beauty to behold.

    • You seem to forget that for betty the world begins and ends with a welfare check.

    • Perhaps you should do just the slightest bit of research before exposing yourself.

      from the washington post, which I'm sure you'll insist is wrong and your pipedream version of reality is right....
      The cuts are also evenly split between defense spending — with spending on wars exempt — and discretionary domestic spending, which exempts most spending on entitlements like Social Security and Medicaid, as the Bipartisan Policy Center explains. The total cuts for 2013 will be $109 billion, according to the new White House report.
      whoops, no SS cuts!
