Fear Mongering LIES
I received an email from one of obama’s operatives.
WE ALL need to fight the nasty fearmongoring lies of obama.
My understanding is that “Sequester” is hardly a pimple on an elephant’s back.
In 2013 spending will actually INCREASE, even with advertised “disastrous cuts” of $85Billion.
That’s right. The $85Billion “cuts” don’t quite cover INCREASED Spending.
Spending will actually increase this year even with the automatic reductions – about $15 billion more than 2012 according to CBO estimates Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/22/on-sequester-worse-better-for-obama/#ixzz2LxjIxLex
Read about the fearmongering lies being spread by Obama’s operatives ( below the = = = ) and
- Ask…. With $15 BILLION MORE Spending, how can we have
- Cuts to Education?
- o Cuts to small business?
- o Cuts to public safety?
- o Cuts to food safety?
- o Cuts to research and innovation?
- o Cuts to mental health?
- 1.4 million private sector jobs could be lost.?
Those are outrageous lies, unless Obama is stealing those funds for his “retirement” !
- TAKE ACTION! …. Here is the one thing in the email I agree with… IT IS UP TO YOU
- Congress needs to hear it from their constituents back home: Their lack of action will have serious consequences for everyday Americans. Each of us needs to speak up.
- So, let your politician know. Send them an email
- SHARE this with all your friends… THEY need to TAKE ACTION TOO!
- STOP THE BULL FECES!

There's a good chance you and your family will be directly affected by the disastrous budget cuts scheduled to take effect on Friday.
These budget cuts -- known as the sequester -- take a sledgehammer to the budget and indiscriminately cut critical programs vital to middle-class families and economic growth.
Republicans in Congress could stop these dangerous cuts, but right now they're refusing to do so. They are more interested in protecting tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires than stopping the sequester, compromising on a balanced deficit reduction plan of smart spending cuts, and closing tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires.
Let this sink in: Some members of Congress are so unwilling to compromise that we all need to prepare ourselves for job layoffs, an increased risk of foodborne illnesses, delayed flights, fewer teachers and less access to early education, and a longer wait for a cure for many diseases - plus, some economists estimate that as many as 1.4 million private sector jobs could be lost.
Get more of the details below, then share your story on how these cuts will affect you, your family, or someone you know.
-- Cuts to education: Sequester cuts will hurt kids of all ages. 70,000 young children would be kicked off Head Start, 10,000 teacher jobs would be threatened, and funding for up to 7,200 special education teachers, aides, and staff could be cut.
-- Cuts to small business: Small businesses create two-thirds of all new jobs in America. Instead of helping small businesses expand and hire, the sequester cuts would reduce loan guarantees to small businesses by up to $540 million.
-- Cuts to public safety: Federal funding to programs that help local fire departments meet staffing and equipment needs would be cut by an estimated amount of more than $35 million. The sequester also includes cuts to the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration, meaning more delayed flights, longer wait times at the airports, and less security monitoring our nation's flight systems.
-- Cuts to food safety: Outbreaks of foodborne illness are a serious threat to families and public health. The sequester cuts could mean up to 2,100 fewer food inspections, putting families at risk and costing billions in lost food production.
-- Cuts to research and innovation: The impending sequester cuts would delay progress toward cures for many diseases and several thousand researchers could lose their jobs. Up to 12,000 scientists and students would also be affected.
-- Cuts to mental health: The sequester cuts could mean that up to 373,000 seriously mentally ill adults and emotionally disturbed children go untreated.
These cuts don't have to happen. If Republicans agree to compromise, Congress can pass a balanced plan for deficit reduction by cutting spending in a smart way and closing tax loopholes for the wealthiest. If they refuse to act, they will let these severe cuts fall squarely on the middle class.
Congress needs to hear it from their constituents back home: Their lack of action will have serious consequences for everyday Americans. Each of us needs to speak up.
