Sequester fraud in one picture

SequesterUPDATE: Maryland’s Dan Bongino, today observed that DC-area airports have exempted themselves from the below-mentioned Sequester cuts! This coming on the heels of today’s announcement that some in Congress are looking to exempt themselves and their staffs from Obamacare. How does one describe such people?

April 25, 2013 A picture is worth a thousand words. The FAA made news this weekend as hundreds of flights were delayed due to cuts in air traffic controller hours, supposedly as a result of the Sequester. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood claimed that “We looked everywhere possible to avoid the kind of furloughs that are now taking place.” Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney added:

The fact is Congress had an opportunity, but Republicans made a choice. We made it clear that there would be these kinds of negative effects if Congress failed to take reasonable action to avert the sequester…

They are simply lying. There is no other way to describe it. The accompanying chart, courtesy Phil Kerpen, shows that the FAA has a larger budget now, after the sequester, than the President requested for 2013.

This President is willing to put lives at risk and maximize inconvenience for travelers in a blatant effort to tar Republicans. It is a game of “I win, you lose,” designed to improve the prospects for Democrats in 2014. If Republicans stand tall and don’t give in to these tactics, Obama and his minions engage in…

    Typical Liberal (democrats) propaganda to LIE to the public for a political motive. Show me a person who voted for obama and you will meet either a liar, a dupe or someoi with major character flaws.

      The problem is no so much with the lying; that’s normal for traitorous politicians. The real problem is with the 51% of voters (what does that even mean anymore?) who just don’t care. Like my dog; wake up in the morning with the only goal being to get to dark. Then wake up tomorrow and do it again. That is the problem, and with open borders, it’s only going to get worse, along with the lying.

        Before you accept the 51% figure, demand an honest count of the votes.

    I suppose the old saying, “Tell the truth and shame the devil”, cannot apply to our current government, especially when the president of the U.S. is THE DEVIL!!!!

    No matter how many times the democrats are caught screwing the taxpayer and lying to the public, the low information voter will still vote them back in. That’s why the left controls the “public education system”, to raise a crop of fools who believe that government is “THE” solution for everything.

      So scarily TRUE !

      Who is counting the votes?

    Obama and the gang are intent on making Americans “feel the pain” of sequestration as much as possible. I’m willing to bet that they didn’t touch the funding for “robotic squirrel research”.

    Secretary Ray LaHood claimed that “We looked everywhere possible to avoid the kind of furloughs that are now taking place.” ecretary Ray LaHood claimed that “We looked everywhere possible to avoid the kind of furloughs that are now taking place.”

    Obviously Ray didn’t look everywhere as HE and HIS IMMEDIATE STAFF are still employed and getting their full hours and pay. Equally obvious it the fact that they provide Nothing of substance to the Safety Issues of Air Traffic Control ! The very least RAY LaHood could do is to hold all further WIND BAG activities at the end of an aircraft runway where his exhaust could provied a LOT of EXTRA LIFT for the aircraft taking off, (carc.) not withstanding the argument that HOT AIR doesn’t provide as much lift as Cold Air.

    Government economics go hand in hand with FED money. Both of them are make believe and you can’t ever believe the fairy tales that they tell you. Only with the government and FED can 0+0= 1 and 1-1 = 3

    Greyhound or Amtrak but you can’t have both. Well megabus if you are lucky! You people wanna fly all the way to Washington from Toledo. The scary thing is many of you feel you shouldn’t have to connect in Atlanta, you just want to go direct to Washington. Take the bus!

    Sequester was Obama’s bluff that we called and he immediately fell on the floor and threw a tantrum like the three-year old he is. ” I hate you and I will make it hurt you” he yells as he kicks and pummels the floor.
    Typical spoiled brat with no concern for others.

      The House should CALL his bluff, and just start slashing previously appropriated available funds to ALL these crappy programs, like the one to ‘help prostitutes in China’ (I mean, you gotta be kidding me?), the sex life of left-handed conies in South America, and other “important” research! The HOUSE is the legislative arm which determines fund allotments, after all, isn’t it?

      It really WOULDN’T bother me for the government to STOP foolishly spending so much money, now!. Would it bother you?

    j. carney is a flake, but so are the rest of obummers REGIME!!

    And yet we allow these people to continue to rampage without the media saying a thing. Was it not obvious to knowing Americans that this was a joke, a scam, a lie that Obama and the media and the Democrats were pulling on America in order to continue their drive to spend us into bankruptcy?
    If America does not wake up and demand that Congress act to IMPEACH the entire administration, we will see the exact same people who voted for them rioting in the streets and pillaging the houses of the citizens who Feinstein and Reid have disarmed.
