No shame: Obama’s sequestration was “designed as budget threat, not budget strategy”

Jim Hoft @ Gateway Pundit:

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) admitted to David Gregory on Meet the Press today that the Obama sequestration plan was just a political game and was never intended to move forward.

“David, sequestration was designed as a budget threat, not as a budget strategy. And, I think all of us understand that if it goes forward in less than three weeks it’s going to have a dramatic negative impact on several agencies.”

    Add all of the sequestration cuts up and it is a drop in the bucket!
    Take a look:

    Yes, it was another game by Obama to force his way or the highway on Republicans.
    But shared across all departments instead of JUST the military and it is literally nothing.

    This sequestration is playing havoc on DOD. yes there could be some trimming, but not a rape. DOD workers are being used like chess pieces. They are being told one week they will be furloughed and the next they aren’t. Then a reduction in force is being talked about and then they say it is a last resort. Pretty soon they will be charged rent for their cubicle. I don’t think anyone would want to be jacked around like they are. Federal workers haven’t gotten a raise in 3 years and now they have to contribute more to their retirement and will only get a portion back when they retire. It is actually an additional tax but if the govt counts it as part of the retirement, the workers can’t count it during tax time. Now to further explain. The federal employees retirement system will match up to 5%. However if you only put in 2% , the govt only matches 2. They dont get a free ride. Regardless. The sequestration is decimating the military and I truly believe this is what barry wants to happen. This is only the beginning.
