Everyone except the “low information voters,” as Rush Limbaugh calls them, knew the “draconian” cuts amounted to about one percent of the budget for 2013 and was actually an increase in spending from the year before.
Everyone knew the sequestration was Obama’s idea.
Everyone knew that it was another one of Obama’s manufactured crises to get Congress to cave to his demands—this time for another tax hike on the “fat cat millionaires and billionaires.”
But Congress wasn’t listening.
Obama, as expected, pulled out the big guns:
That our border would be less safe.
That we’d be less safe against terrorists.
Obama even pulled the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Truman out of commission, citing his phony sequestration cuts. The U.S.S. Harry S. Truman was scheduled to deploy to the Persian Gulf, probably the most unstable area on the planet, and no doubt is contributing to emboldening our enemies.
If this isn’t grounds for treason, I don’t know what is.
But Congress wasn’t going to cave to Obama’s phony prediction……..
