How Sequester Is Exposing Big Government’s Big Lie

How Sequester Is Exposing Big Government’s Big Lie

liesHere’s the “good news” buried in the sequester showdown: The Big Lie of Big Government is about to be exposed — if members of Congress will stand strong and not be bullied by Obama.

Despite the President’s posturing to the contrary, the entire sequester “crisis” is a fabrication of Obama himself. The idea originated in the White House (Bob Woodward is paying the price for exposing that truth). It is designed to force us to accept even higher taxes and more government spending. The Obama team never imagined that Republicans would call his bluff. And now, his whole scheme threatens to expose Big Government’s Big Lie.

What is that BIG LIE? Simply this: The LEFT’S BIG LIE is that any cutbacks to BIG GOVERNMENT will cause severe economic hardship to be unleashed on our nation. But it’s a lie! 

Charles Krauthammer eloquently explained this truth in his article today. If the sky doesn’t fall with a modest cutback in government spending, Krauthammer says “people might get the idea that we can shrink government, and live on.” Thus, if the sky DOESN’T fall with a 2% cut in government spending, then the BIG LIE of BIG GOVERNMENT will be exposed. That’s why Obama’s far-left “Organizing For Action” activist group sent this message out to their tens of millions of followers yesterday:

On the chopping block are 10,000 teaching jobs, more than 70,000 kids’ spots in Head Start, $35 million for local fire departments, $43 million to make sure seniors don’t go hungry, and access to nutrition assistance for 600,000 women and their families.

And that’s why OFA sent another message immediately after the speech urging their followers to lobby Congress. Obama and the Left WANT sequester. They want the threat of school teachers and firemen and air traffic controllers losing their jobs because it creates an underlying fear of any cutbacks in government. If government spending is cut, the sky will fall!

We can recognize that with Obama, it’s always poker. And it’s time to call his bluff. As Krauthammer points out, we have an example from very recent history that it is possible to survive a two-percent cut. In January, Obama and Congress forced upon the American people a 2 percent tax increase.  It hurt but we survived. Government can survive a two percent cut as well. Which means that Obama has handed us a grand opportunity: we can call his bluff and the nation can learn that we can, in fact, survive government cuts.

Plus, if Obama and the “sky is falling” alarmists are correct that a two percent cut in government spending will cause widespread economic hardship, it only proves the point that government spending is totally out of control. Liberty News’ Norvell Rose makes this point very well in an exclusive called “The Sequester Is Falling!”

If you would like to add your voice to tens of thousands who are rejecting Big Government Alarmism and another blatant attempt to raise our taxes and increase the size of government, sign the “No New Taxes” petition.

    This foreign object that we have moving around the country and world like a house cat on fire is Hussein Obama. He represents no one in the middle class of America, only the malcontents and lowlifes. That is correct, malcontents and lowlifes. Lowlifes being described as those who couldn’t careless as long as they get handouts at the trough. What we have as a president is a Communist in sheeps clothing masquerading as a liberal. He is tearing the country to shreds by intent so he can impose all that communist garbage that his 17 tsars are feeding him. As I understand the cutbacks, they are only a reduction in the increased spending, not existing budgets. So what is the big deal other than blowing smoke and creating division within the country. I remember him saying a few years back that he was going to unite everyone. Watch what he does, not what he says.

    Our reps and Sens. in Congress need to be told: Do not cooperate nor compromise with the defrauder in chief. He is a liar, a fraud, a racist – and that is the nice things I have to say about him. Resist, impeach, convict, imprison him for the crimes he is committing and has committed. He and his gang and czars need to be shown that they are not above the law and he works for the people – that is the citizens! By the way I don’t hate him because he is black; I hate what he stands for and what he does! His actions show his utter lack of character, integrity, and humanity. The evil he does and represents speaks much louder than his words, but very few are really watching and comparing the hearing versus the conduct. It is very interesting that the main promoters of his reign of evil are the higher education institutions in this country. That are leading the ignorant and unlearned low information voters around by their noses. It reminds me so much of the story of the “Pied Piper”, as he leads the country to destruction with many giggling all the way. A great philosopher once said ” the one thing you can’t fix is stupid!”
