Dear Whining President Obama,
Starting today, your precious government must face an across the board 2.8% budget cut, aptly named ‘Sequestration‘. You’ve been complaining that thousands of teachers will lose their jobs, air traffic controllers will be laid off thus making flying dangerous, our meat and poultry will become tainted and inedible due to the firing of food inspectors, Homeland Security will not be able to protect us, many government facilities will be closed down due to furloughs, national parks and recreation areas will be shuttered, all due to the sequestration budget cuts, you, yourself signed into law over 15 long months ago.
Please be advised that ‘We The People’ had our own across the board budget cut of 2% on January 1, 2013 when the Social Security payroll tax was reinstated (after you, Mr, Obama reduced them, quite foolishly, I might add, two years ago). Since January 1st, all of us working folk (who amazingly are still employed) have managed to survive the 2% cuts. My recommendation to you is this: if ‘We The People’ can do it, and not complain and mumble, then so can you!
Why don’t you shut the f**k up and get back to work. The sky is not going to fall. The earth is not going to stop revolving around the sun. Life is still going to go on. Americans, for the most part, are very resourceful people. Instead of trying to foolishly scare the bejesus out of us, why don’t you put your big boy pants on and solve some of the $16.5trillion dollars worth of problems you and congress have put on our backs.
PS: I fully agree with the Republicans on this one: no new taxes or increases in any tax revenues. ENOUGH!
