    Supreme Court Justices: Sequester Will Lead to Greater Gov't Spending!

    Duh, I think Republicans are too stupid to govern, really.

    In testimony before Congress, Breyer and Kennedy contend, among other problems....
    ------
    Kennedy said cuts to federal public defender funding could end up not saving money, because judges are constitutionally bound to appoint lawyers to defend the accused.

    If there are no public defenders available, private lawyers would have to be paid to do the job, he said.

    -------
    You'll save $80,000 on a P.D. and spend $500,000 a year on a private lawyer, and the accused might get a better lawyer. Not what the fascist GOP ever wants.

    • One justice who is liberal. Not a consensus billy. To cut spending and bring our spending under control is going to be painful. So be it to save the country from the ruin you would see happen so you can enjoy your entitlements on someone else's dollar. Yes, billy you might actually have to get a job and earn your money for a change.
