    by CJ @ CVA responds to Sequestration Would Not Happen | A Soldier's Perspective,

    During Monday’s debate, President Obama made the following dishonest statement:

    In response, Concerned Veterans for America CEO Pete Hegseth released the following statement in response: @ Concerned Veterans for America

    “It was astonishing to hear a flat declaration from the President that sequestration would not happen. The fact that members of Congress sounded just as surprised by the President’s statement last night and this morning isn’t encouraging, but far less surprising – CVA has been on the record for months calling on both the administration and Congress to take action, show leadership, enact reforms, and avoid the impending ‘meat axe’. It hasn’t happened.

    “CVA has two concerns about the President’s statement. The first is that the President really thinks we can solve fundamental structural problems with government spending in a couple weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas – which means he has either no concept of just how out-of-control these problems have gotten, or that he has no intention to seek real reforms. This would be almost as tragic as letting the ‘meat axe’ fall in January – because without real reform, it’s going to fall anyway.

    “The second is that the President was not serious, and merely used the comment as a throwaway line to divert a line of question. The speed with which his spokesmen have been walking back the statement certainly suggests this might be the case. Given the seriousness of the subject, this is profoundly disappointing.”

    Does spending 98 cents instead of a dollar, really mean we're all going to die? What I like are all of the people that have shown that if the potus was really serious about cutting he'd take the money he spent on say, crayfish excerise, and pay a soldier with that instead.
    We are such suckers.

    You can bet your ass(ets) that Hussein will do whatever he can to disrupt life in the US in order to punish Americans for supporting a lousy 2% reduction in spending. Screw the Country. It's about Chicago politics.

    We put radical Islam, a group that Egypt banned from office, in office. Now we are ignoring those poor Egyptians while they protest our choice of a ruler for them.
    AND while they stand in front of the cameras and wish us a good death, we "donate" billions to their radical leaders, the ones that want to blow Israel off the map before Iran gets the gold ring.
    How many soldiers, poor children, and elderly Americans could we help with billions?

    Yep! Barry is giving 1.5 BILLION to Egypt. Wonder what we might have done with all that money in this day and age of "sequester"?? Especially with the facts that Egypt's President believes that we are "descendants of Apes and rats" and that 9/11 was an "american job".......

    $200 Million - Army Procurement of ammunition

    $59 Million - US Marshalls salaries and expenses

    $53 Million - Food safety and inspection service

    $52 Million - FEMA Salaries and expenses

    $49 Million - Federal Air Marshalls

    $20 Million - Border Security

    $16 Million - 9/11 Victim Compensation

    $1 Million - Military Defense Nuclear waste disposal


    And to think of all the gnashing of teeth that was done by the White House......
