The sequester is now upon us and the sky hasn't fallen yet, as Mr. Obama has been preaching all over the U.S. This was his idea, although he has tried to blame everyone else. The White House now admits this, and he still demands more spending and taxation.
Our country's defenses, of course, are at most risk, but if you have read any of his writings, you know this is all part of his plan to downsize America and spread her wealth around. He is determined to take from hard-working people and give to those who have no desire to work, and thus create a wholly dependent populace.
Mr. Portal was right on with his letter, but this can be taken even further. What about the study of social habits of fish or the mating habits of bullfrogs? Hundreds of thousands more in unnecessary spending. What about lavish seminar parties for the GSA or other departments? Millions spent on imbibing and wild goings-on.
And of course, the Democrats are blaming the Republicans — but then, maybe they should be blamed. It seems they are the only ones trying to do something for the American people while the Democrats have not passed a budget in four years, and continue to sit on their thumbs. Harry Reid has tabled every plan sent over from the House. As long as Mr. Obama is in office, expect things to get worse. Nothing yet has been done about Benghazi or Fast and Furious, two terrible tragedies. Mr. Obama is not a friend to America.
