If you spend $1000.00 a week, don't you think you could find $23.00 to cut?
You have to ask yorself? Jugears Obama would have you believe the world will end with that $23.00 cut in weekly spending. The level of spending in 2010 by the way was lower. If Obama strikes out and hurts the people with this cut , great it's on him.
What really needs to beis about a 12% cut. Obama is making so much noise about this to distract from what really needs doing.
Sure, there needs to be cut but there also needs to be revenues. More important, there is a need for strict checks and balances to eliminate fraud, waste and redundant spending. It is asinine to just regurgitate words like "no new taxes", "cut, cut, cut" like that is ultra scientific economics. It is ridiculous, childish and ignorant to hold an entire country and its hard working people hostage because of your political agenda. Cutting a big tree down with a dull axe is insane.
If an agency like the Military has a lot of spending that is not discretionary like contracts they have small areas in which they have discretion to cut. One area is they can lay off civilian workers. They can do that without cutting any programs. They don't want to cut programs because programs create funding. So you figure out what happens.
ppl will watch the news, catch a few headlines, and believe that it's all the republicans' fault. total win for obama. he might even give speeches later on boasting about how he cut the budget. won't matter, his voters would drink the poison coolaid without question. country is toast.
