Rand Paul Exposes Obama's Histrionics Over Sequester
Paul exposes the silly emotional theatrics of Obama, which he rightly notes concerning the sequester, is the idea of Obama himself. Is Obama this confused? Really?
“I mean, for goodness sakes, it was his proposal. He proposed the sequester, it was his idea. He signed it into law, now he’s going to tell us that, ‘Oh, it’s all our fault?’” Paul said on CNN. “I voted against the sequester because I didn’t think it was enough.”
The new idea of a budget cut in Washington is to spend as much as they can over the years, and then when that projected spending growth is lowered, it's called a budget cut. That's what Obama is doing here, pretending there are cuts that will be made, when in fact all they are are reductions in the rate of growth. Nothing more.
“I think the sequester happens and it will be in some ways a yawn because the histrionics that are coming from the president saying, ‘Oh, we’re going to shut down and get rid of meat inspectors’ — I mean, is anybody not going to stand up and call his bluff on that ridiculousness?”
In other words, in spite of Obama's childish rantings, there aren't going to be any budget cuts going forward, only a slowdown in increased spending that was already running too high.
