Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), on Sunday’s (February 10, 2013) Meet The Press, told host David Gregory, “David, sequestration was designed as a budget threat, not as a budget strategy.” That is certainly a shocker, a Democrat telling the truth. Durbin continued, “And, I think all of us understand that if it goes forward in less than three weeks it’s going to have a dramatic negative impact on several agencies.” That is an understatement, to say the least. Sequestration, an Obama administration idea (be sure to read these references), is a result of the budget process of 2011. Sequestration is a mandatory budget cut of $1.2 trillion over ten years, half from domestic (discretionary) programs, half from the defense budget, resulting from the so-called “SuperCommittee’s” inability to agree – on anything.
Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, in October 2012, said, during a presidential debate, “First of all, the sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.” That was our first hint that sequestration was a threat. And, Obama had the chutzpah to lie about its origin on national TV. As Curt says, Obama has “No Shame.” But, Democrats/liberals/progressives (DLP) and low-information voters believed him. And the lap-dog MSM didn’t call him on it.
