The Administration has told us that if sequestration goes into effect, we will have to not finish construction of an aircraft carrier… fire teachers and firefighters… close parts of the national zoo… close airports… fire 800,000 military employees… stop inspecting meat and that cuts to Medicare will cause massive job losses.
That list isn’t even close to exhaustive. The Administration says that the sequester will kill grandma with nursing home cuts… eviscerate job creating investments in education and energy and research… fire border agents… lay off FBI agents… federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go… airport security will be cut causing three hour waits… tens of thousands of parents will have to find new child care… hundreds of thousands will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings… it goes on and on.
Here is the effect on federal spending caused by the sequester. Okay folks, where’s Waldo?
The lies of this Administration border on the schizophrenic.
