Default Obamas sequester threat speech

Watching live on yahoo
It is scary and sad how this guy tries to scare American workers and places all the blame on Republicans and the wealthiest few..
What kind of leader comes on national tv and tries to scare the working people into his way of thinking.
And then says he is not going to play the blame game..Unreal

I blame them all, Obama included. They've had 12-18 months to fix this. If they aren't sitting in a room fixing this then we should be recalling ALL of them.

Rush put it in perspective today. Don't quote me but it was something like cutting $0.25 out of $3700.

Yup, several times over the last week heard roughly that and the truly small effect it will actually have on the public. Good with the bad, sequsster away, let the social programs and his bullshit programs wither on the vine with the rest of it.

Sequester isn't really a spending "cut" anyway. It's just reducing the amount of a spending increase the fed will have this year. They will still be spending more this year than they did last year.

Simple comparison: You made $20 an hour last year. You boss tells you a few months ago that your next raise will get you up to $25 an hour. But now, because of their revenue being a little less that expected, your raise is only going to get you up to $22.50 an hour. You're still bringing home more than last year, your raise is just a little less. By no means a pay "cut".

Sequester works the same way. The spending increase is $85B less than what the fed wanted. No one will starve, no one will lose their job...unless they were going to anyway due to last year's "inadequate" spending levels.

Watching C-span right now, all the Dems are blaming the Republicans, saying 'The Republicans WANT the sequester!'

In reality, the sequester is a small step towards righting a lot of what's wrong with this country.

I've heard it as a third of one percent, which is more like $11 per $3700. But I thought it was different from state to state, depending on a lot of things.

I like how Obama's staffer got all bent to shit at Bob Woodward for not pushing the "Repubs are to blame" sequester story. Woodward is saying that he was threatened by the staffer.

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/50988772/n...spending-cuts/

Odd for liberal NBC to let this story out?
