White House releases state-by-state breakdown of sequester's effects
Washington Post ^ | 2/24/13 | Zachary A. Goldfarb and Paul Kane

Posted on 02/24/2013 5:28:11 PM PST by Nachum

The White House on Sunday detailed how deep spending cuts set to begin this week would affect programs in every state and the District, as President Obama launched a last-ditch effort to pressure congressional Republicans to compromise on a way to stop the across-the-board cuts.But while Republicans and Democrats were set to introduce dueling legislative proposals this week to avert the Friday start of the spending cuts, known as the sequester, neither side expected the measures to get enough support to pass Congress.

When I first glanced at the title I thought it said” Waffle House.”

Will the sequesterization cut the use of our tax dollars for false or misleading press releases or speeches (or so many ridiculously expensive vacations at our expense)?

I’m genuinely hoping the things they’re threatening us with will happen. I’d lovebto see government leaches laid off and worthless programs suspended. Unfortunately this news is too good to be true

Guess you shouldn’t have come up with the idea, Baraq.

Guess you shouldn’t have signed it into law, Baraq.

Too bad, Baraq. You’re on your own now. Come back when you grow up, mmkay?

Yep, the title has the spelling error.

You just read it correctly, even though it’s spelled wrong.

The sequester is not a cut. It’s a slowing down of the increase. Budgets will still increase.

This is silly.

When a questionable president, and his Soros "progressive" cronies pick the list f cuts, this is the result.

THIS IS OBAMA'S LIST TO "FIX" THE PROBLEM.

Enjoy.

Effects of the Obama Sequester.

It would be nice to hear similar summaries of the inevitable consequences of continuing to borrow 40% of federal expenditures and for the Fed to buy a majority of the Treasury's massive annual bond issuance with printed money. Or, to hear warnings about the effects that will result from continuing to ignore GAP accounting practices that would require the trillions of $ of additional accrued Federal liabilities to be booked each year, instead pretending they're not real and leaving them completely off-balance sheet.

Yeah, yeah. Women and children are going to suffer and old people will have to eat dog food. Blah, blah, blah. When you don’t have facts, you just lie and scare everybody.

If there was a government shutdown, most of us probably wouldn’t notice.

I think they’ll fold too. And then they’ll get ownership and lose this in more ways than one.

RE :”The Washington area would be hit hard. Virginia, Maryland and the District cumulatively would lose $29 million in elementary and high school funding, putting at risk 390 teacher and teacher-aide jobs and affecting 27,000 students. About 2,000 poor children would lose access to early education, and less funding would mean 31,400 fewer HIV tests.”

BOO-HOO-HOO

For those of you who don't live in this area, here in Maryland the boom still continues, new housing developments keep popping up everywhere wiping out forest and open space .
We are in the $$$$.

"I think they’ll fold too. And then they’ll get ownership and lose this in more ways than one."

If the pubbies fold, the GOP will be a party without a base, campaigning to be the Potemkin Village opposition. The will lose the House in 2014 as a result IMO.

They long for the days they weren’t in charge of anything. It was easier. Back to the Bob Michael days.

Let’s start cutting the fat out of our broken government budget by canceling Michele’s traveling circus, El Bozo’s never-ending campaign trips, all green energy boondoggles for his cronies, firing all his unconstitutional czars and their little fiefdoms, canceling all sensitivity training and other bureaucratic mumbo jumbo etc etc etc.....

Looking at the data (and ONLY those with $$ attached), the “cuts” are 81-19 Defense of $8.7 Billion total.

I thought it was supposed to be 50-50. I guess that’s why the regime didn’t put numbers on some “cuts”. Cute. Not!

BTW, only seven states (IA, MN, NV, OR, VT, WV, WI) had fewer defense “cuts” than discretionary “cuts”.
