Fear, facts and transparency

According to the news, the government has opted to release some 1,000 illegal aliens into the general population. They claim it is necessary due to the "sequestration" issue.

This appears to be an obvious move in order to discredit those who have attempted to rein in the undisciplined spending spree of the Obama administration. From credible sources, we hear that the 2.5 percent required reduction could easily be obtained from other sectors — ones that do not entail the negative impact on the safety of the public.

How could anyone get a better "bang for the bucks" than having felons roaming our streets? This because their opponents would not aid them in their lack of fiscal responsibility.

What next — reduce air traffic controllers or Border Patrol agents? "Scare tactics" are being used to propagate ideology.

Anyone who has ever worked with budgets is aware there are some features common to all:

1. Allocation of monies.

2. Some built-in "wiggle room."

3. The need to spend the entire amount each year because the following year it will be considered in your new budget.

Isn't it time we separated "fear" from "facts" and receive the transparency we were promised?
