If you listen to our intentionally deceptive national leadership you would think the sky was falling as sequestration kicks in. Millions will lose their jobs, airports will have to close, police officers and firefighters will be furloughed, children will go hungry, and we have to return our aircraft carriers to port.
Can’t anyone do the math? Our current federal spending is about $4 trillion per year. Sequestration will require a reduction of about $80 billion, or about a 2 percent reduction.
If your family brings in about $50,000 per year, that means a spending reduction of about $83 per month. That is about what it costs a couple to dine out at a quality restaurant. Come on, folks. You are being lied to by some of the best con artists in the world. Wake up!
