I am so sick of hearing the scare tactics the Obama administration have spread for a couple of weeks — they wanted the sequestration to back the GOP into a corner and it didn’t work. As Sean Hannity would say – “its time to put on your big boy pants”. And the comment today by Obama about not being able to use a Jedi mind meld to pass a budget — is he kidding? Too often it feels like this country is being run by a group of 10 year olds. Reminds me of a comment last night by Michael Reagan about the president leading by tanrum — that just really sums it up.
But back to the sequester – I hadn’t thought about it, but with the 2% tax increase in payroll deductions (which is actually just a rollback of the “tax holiday” from a couple of years ago), the working American public is facing a bigger revenue hit than the Federal government. Imagine if every tax paying person in this country belly ached as much as the politicians about a 2-3% revenue hit. Come on you all – grow up and make the tough decisions or we can just start cutting the insane list of benefits that politicians get.
