Will the Sequester Kill Us All?
I have to tell you, folks, I’m getting profoundly confused here as I listen to everybody talk about the sequester. Of course, we’re one day closer now. Every day takes us one day closer. It’s a quirk of the calendar. Every day we get closer to it. And I’m gonna tell you, I don’t know what’s gonna kill more people now — assault weapons, global warming, or the sequester. If you listen to Obama and his minions in the news media, they’re all running neck and neck. Maybe we need to start exploring some kind of sequester control, because it’s out of control.
This whole sequester business totally out of control. We might need universal sequester registration in order to deal with it. In fact, I’m starting to think that the sequester might even cause more trouble in the world than man-made global warming. And global warming, man-made global warming, even causes asteroids. God knows what the sequester’s gonna cause. I mean, the pressure and the intensity is mounting. I got the most incredible story here just posted about an hour-and-a-half ago. Byron York at the Washington Examiner: “The GOP’s Astonishingly Bad Message on Sequester Cuts.”
In a Wall Street Journal op-ed today, House Speaker John Boehner describes the upcoming sequester as a policy, “that threatens US national security, thousands of jobs, and more.” That’s Boehner, the Speaker, the Republican leader in the House, writing in the Wall Street Journal today, which leads to the question: Why would they support it? But they are. The Republicans are supporting the sequester, and they’re positioning it — or Boehner did today — as something threatens national security and thousands of jobs. And yet the Republicans are all for it. This is a genuine head scratcher out there.
