This is getting ridiculous. What is next? Do puppy’s get lined up and shot because of the sequester? Insane. These weren’t cuts, just decreases in the rate of growth. The sad part is that people will believe him.
Check it out:
President Barack Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address to blast Republicans for relieving air-traffic delays from sequester-related furloughs while “inflicting pain on the public” by imperiling poor children, hungry seniors, and workers.
“They may not feel the pain felt by kids kicked off Head Start, or the 750,000 Americans projected to lose their jobs because of these cuts, or the long-term unemployed who will be further hurt by them,” said Obama. “But that pain is real.”
Obama added: “Because of these reckless cuts, there are parents whose kids just got kicked out of Head Start programs scrambling for a solution. There are seniors who depend on programs like Meals on Wheels to live independently looking for help…. Republicans claimed victory when the sequester first took effect, and now they’ve decided it was a bad idea all along.”
