Barack Obama, standing in front of seventeen first responders, blasted Republicans on Tuesday for refusing to raise taxes as part of a deal to avoid the “sequester” cuts. However, it was his own administration who not only championed the idea of the sequester, but he is the man that signed it into law.
Given that Obama signed the sequester into law, one would think you would not hear him do an about face on it by stating that first responders’ “ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. Border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. FBI agents will be furloughed. Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go… These cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy, they will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls.”
This is all par for the course with Washington politicians and we have come to expect nothing from Mr. Obama. After all Barack Obama is a big tax, big government guy.
Interestingly enough though, though he blamed Republicans for this manufactured crisis, which they did agree to, who was ultimately responsible for these cuts that “are not smart,…not fair,…will hurt our economy… and,” as Obama simplified in his speech, cause “people to lose their jobs”?
