With Friday past us and the sequestration spending cuts now a reality, there looks to be some hope for America’s future after all. I may be reading too much into this, but the fact is that Obama failed to get what he wanted.
He lied about everything, he did his best to scare hell out of the American public, he threatened everyone and everything he could, to prevent a decrease in projected spending. He misrepresented the sequestration as being a reduction in basically every service and government function from our military budget to Medicare, although the truth is that government spending will increase anyway. Now it will just increase by $80 billion less, that’s all. The Democrats are still spending us into the poorhouse and a cut of a Trillion$ wouldn’t be enough to reverse that, since they intend to INCREASE spending over $2 Trillion more anyway.
But still, there’s hope. Obama didn’t get what he wanted in spite of all his efforts, and that tells me that while he has a half-nelson on America, he doesn’t have a stranglehold. Enough Republicans held firm on this to stop him, and maybe that will give the rest more gumption to join them. After all, there will be another mid-term election.
