The AP-Times Square New Year’s Eve Poll conducted by GfK surveyed 1,367 American adults this month to determine public attitudes about political issues, government, and 2013 as a whole.
After the devastating sequestration cuts, the White House decided it couldn’t afford to host public tours any more.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with the government's estimates of economic performance for August today. The news is, as it has been for a long time, mediocre.
The Obama Administration's predictions of doom and gloom for sequestration have backfired.
Another story has emerged out of the Department of Defense that the economic consequences from sequestration will be less dire than what was predicted. DoD initially projected that there would be 22 furlough days for government employees.
I despise the corrupt Washington game of obtaining unearned wealth thanks to the sleazy interaction of lobbyists, politicians, bureaucrats, and interest groups. So you can imagine my unfettered joy when reading about how this odious process is being curtailed by sequestration.
The little secret of sequestration is that the Obama administration could fix much of the problem pretty quickly. But it doesn't want to.
Perhaps you remember the rich history of Chicago? Obama reminds me of a fellow named Capone who sent out his version of Holder, Napolitano, Panetta, and LaHood to tell people; say nice business you got here, be a shame anything happens to it.
As predicted, the Democrats' refusal to cut any spending other than the military only delayed the inevitable. Now, as is already taking place in Greece, France and Spain, deep cuts must take place or the government will shut down. The fiscal cliff agreement and the Budget Control Act of 2011 called for sequestration on March 1st if an agreement on how to pay down the deficit was not reached. The sequestration mandates $1.2 trillion in spending cuts across the board throughout most of the federal government over the next decade. The only way to prevent sequestration is if the Democrats and Republicans come up with a compromise this week, which could involve tax increases, agreed-upon cuts, or both.
Our fearless leader Obama is just back from a “Swing State”…you know, the kind of place where you work on your golf swing. He was consulting on the economy with Tiger Woods and Butch Harmon. While Michelle was playing in Aspen. You wouldn’t accept this storyline if it was a fictional movie script. Too unrealistic.
President Obama's demagoguery and fear-mongering on his sequester cuts are breathtaking, even for him. Lest you think I am engaging in hyperbole, let me give you the dictionary definition of a demagogue.
