February 28, 2013

Instead of half truths to support your sides argument let's tell the whole story. Even if the sequester cuts kick in the federal government is scheduled to spend $15 billion more than 2012. The cuts only slow the rate of growth of federal spending. To cut spending you have to spend less than the previous year! Household budgets took a 2% real cut this year (my income is less than last year) with the expiration of the payroll tax cut. As a side note spending has increased 27% since 2008. My salary has not increase 27% since 2008.
