Four days and counting until B.H. Obama’s requested, signed, sealed and delivered sequestration becomes a reality, or at least, that’s the daily spin floating out of the White House this week. This administration has even given state by state breakdowns on exactly how, as well as, who will be affected by ‘his’ action, generated by ‘his’ quest for a higher debt ceiling, and the avoidance of a fiscal cliff disaster.
Texas be warned, if you dare to care, this sequestration will force cutbacks on ‘military bases,’ threaten the middle class, vital services for children, seniors and the mentally impaired. Given the President’s sentiment of Texas, no doubt, the state is in for some real deep cuts.
Here’s some important notes from the book of records. Obama took to the road with these same messages in order to get his debt ceiling increase. He did the same in order to continue spending in order to avoid the ‘fiscal cliff.’ He’s repeating the practice of blaming Republicans for everything that’s about to happen, yet, he’s out and about, talking about it, which is not helping, but proving beyond any doubt, the President could care less.
‘According to a White House memo, 52,000 Department of Defense employees in Texas would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by about $274.8 million. Federal defense spending in Texas on procurement, salaries and wages makes up 4.1 percent of the state budget, according to the Pew Research Center.‘
There is no end to the effects of the sequestration‘s effects on Texas, or any other state. ‘Army base operation funding would be cut by about $233 million, and Air Force operation funding cut by about $27 million, according to the memo. Procurement of the Joint Strike Fighter would be reduced, and the Blue Angels naval aviation demonstration shows in Corpus Christi and Fort Worth would be canceled.'
Another important note from the book of records is, while Obama traveled the country, talking about these impending disasters and pointing fingers at the Republicans, he did absolutely nothing to prevent them.
‘Obama’ created these problems and instead of leading the country in finding a solution, he’s continuing to be a major part of the problem and yet, ‘he’s the one the country’s been waiting for.’
