And you flat out lied about the Treasury cuts. From the president's budget: "To support Treasury’s mission, the President’s Budget provides $14.2 billion; a 7.7 percent increase above the 2012 enacted level." Meanwhile, private sector salaries that are taxed to pay for this budget have fallen by about 10% since 2009.
