If the sequester happens, o tells us that air travel will
cease or severely slow down. The
borders will go unprotected; illegal aliens have already been released to
augment this problem. All teachers,
fireman, and police will have to be furloughed. All vaccines will become unavailable. Healthcare for everyone will be affected
negatively. Poor children and old folks
will have to go without food and shelter.
All shipyards and military industry will be shuttered. We may not be able to pay our brave soldiers
and certainly won’t be able to send out social security checks or tax
refunds. (Calm down, there will be no
impact on welfare payments.) With the shutdown
of headstart and other free childcare, parents will have to scramble to look
after their own kids. Water and Air will
be impacted so negatively that you will be able to neither drink nor
breathe. Of course, all the progress we
have made in protecting women will cease and rapes, domestic violence and
unwanted pregnancies will skyrocket. 750,000
people will lose their jobs. All of this
and much more will happen, if we cut 2.3 cents from every dollar we spend. WOW, those are all the things that I care
about! If we can do all that on 2.3
cents, let’s not cut that!! Let’s
continue to spend the 2.3 cents and cut the other 97.7 cents!!!! 97.7 cents of every dollar is obviously spent
on non-essential stuff.
Oh, and I probably exaggerated that healthcare thing. That has little to do with the sequester– Ocare
is killing that.
Meanwhile, unemployment is 7.8%. Interest rates are hovering around 1%. Guns are being given to Mexican cartels, Ambassadors
are being assassinated, Food Stamp usage is on the rise, family wealth is on
the decline and EACH American, even the ones born today, owes more that $53000
towards the debt. Can the sequester be
worse than this?
well said. I call him 0, not o or O. because he is worth nothing.
