Obama Campaigns Against Spending Cuts He Proposed And Signed Into Law

Obama with human props

President Obama came out this morning to again remind us just how dreadful it will be if the spending cuts his White House proposed and that he signed into law take effect. He said all of our lives will be threatened when criminals are released from prison and air traffic controllers and border agents are fired. It’s so horrific that Congress is on vacation and the president took a long weekend to golf in Florida. But pay no mind to that, just look at the human props he brought with him.

So, how bad will the sequestration really be? Look at this chart showing the share of the federal budget the sequester will eliminate. Quelle horreur!
