It is probably the only way we will get any negative movement in the spending frenzy in D. C.. Of course everyone says that the sequester is cutting the budget, when in reality all it means is that the spending will be slowed down. You see in Washington, when they say they are cutting spending what they really are doing is slowing the growth in spending. The sequester is only a measure that will cut into the amount to be spent, not an actual cut in spending.

When I figure my budget for next year, I don’t start from where I ended last year, but rather I start from zero and then begin to look at how much money I have coming in and what my goals are for the coming year, then I allocate my funds accordingly. The Government says; we have this much from last year, we will add 10% to that figure and then look at what we want to accomplish in the next fiscal year. So where my figure starts at zero, their figure will start at say 10 billion, then add 10% to that so they actually start at 11 billion then add the figures for the next year to that amount. So in truth there is an automatic hike in spending even though they say they will cut 85 billion in the fiscal year, oh and by the way, since they are already into this fiscal year, won’t the sequester actually take effect in October 2013 for the 2014 Fiscal year? Since they don’t even have a budget, how do they know what to cut and where since they are just spending money like it was water anyway, what do they know as far as what needs to be cut and how to cut it?

I think that all this hype about sequester is just a bunch of bs that needs to be cut out and these supposed grown men and women need to start acting as if they really are grown-ups and not little children throwing a temper tantrum. The original idea came from President Obama, it was passed by both houses (a pox on them all) of congress and signed by this president. They are all equally to blame and yet they want to put it all on the Republicans. It is time for the posturing to end, for this narcissist in chief to stop being a bully and get to work on fixing the stupid mess he has gotten us into. Lead stupid or get out-of-the-way!
