It seems like today we begin to feel the pain of sequester with flight delays at most of our nation’s airports.
A small percentage of Air Traffic Controllers will be furloughed making the skies that much more dangerous.
I hope it doesn’t take a crash for our “Leaders” to actually lead.
Back on March 3rd, I solved the problem of Sequestration in this post.
I’m no genius and don’t claim to have all the answers, it is just simple math and a simple solution…. sadly our “leaders” have a desire to make everything complicated.
Instead of creating cute Twitter hashtags like
#ObamaFlightDelays maybe Speaker of the House John Boehner could help solve some problems.
Speaker Boehner, President Obama, Leader Reid et al…. try on this hashtag for a change. #FAILURE
I haven’t said much about this because whenever I think about it I get so angry that once again the people we pay to LEAD our nation act like jackasses and don’t do anything…… ok, anyway.
Sequestration. When sequestration goes into effect it accounts for 2.4% of our nation’s total federal spending…..2.4%
If Congress, the President of the United States, the Armed Forces and every other department represented in our nation’s budget can’t find 2.4% to cut, we REALLY are in worse shape than it appears!
The President and Congress are going to roll out the “oh your grandmother isn’t going tot get her Social Security check” fear tactics. Or the “our soldiers are not going to have ammunition to fight with” bogus games… here’s the deal WE need to demand that the people we elected FIND the cuts and make them.
NO ONE will ever convince me that we can’t find 2.4% excessive, wasteful spending in the bloated budgets of our Government!
