Sequestration Scare Tactic
The sequester is coming, and it looks like there's nothing that will happen in the next 48 hours to stop it. But the President and the crazies in DC are on a crusade to scare every American into thinking that you're going to have to live life without meat inspectors, with longer lines at the airport, and with less teachers for your kids.
The reality is that the dollar amount of these cuts is relatively small; a mere 2.4% of the federal budget. But the President seems to be hellbent on making the cuts in the places where it hurts the most. The logical thing would be to ask each government agency to look through their budget and find a way to cut that small percentage out of their department.
But when it comes to our government...logic is rarely present.
Now the government has made the decision to release somewhere between 6,000 and 10,000 illegal aliens who were already on their way somewhere, and they're using the sequester as the excuse.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte joined me on the program today, and says that the release is nothing more than a scare tactic that will end up costing the taxpayers more money at the end due to the additional crimes that will be committed.
