The Phony Sequester Hysteria
I thought we might have gone beyond the phony budget cut claims that are so much the norm in this country. Maybe just because during the last few years in California they actually did reduce spending in some areas.
That doesn't seem to be the case with the hysteria over the federal budget and the supposed "sequester". As Bob Woodward explains, they're not going to cut anything. They're just won't be increasing spending as much as some would like:
"In other words this isn’t even really a cut – “devastating” or otherwise – it’s a modest growth rate reduction following years of unnecessary, embarrassing and unsustainable excesses.".
Yet all of the mainstream media I've read or watched keeps saying there will actually be cuts.
