Well.............. there is one embassy in Libya he does not need to defend anymore, as it is destroyed and its occupants killed. Think of all the money Obama will save! I am sure he will blow those savings in two minutes on some "treats for votes" scheme for illegals.

Everything is Obama's fault to some. The government spends money, Obama's fault. The government cuts spending, Obama's fault.

It seems to me that had Obama followed the advice of HIS OWN Debt Commission, sequestration would have never came to pass.

By the way, I also posted that the WH has now admitted that the defense cuts are dangerous.

Sequester would cut $11 billion from Medicare

Sequestration would cut $11 billion from Medicare and take millions of dollars away from Affordable Care Act implementation programs.

The Obama administration released its highly anticipated report Friday on the effects of sequestration — a blunt-force budget-cutting tool that Congress created when it raised the country's debt ceiling.

The sequester would make deep cuts to defense spending as well as domestic programs. Medicare payments to doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers would take an across-the-board 2 percent cut. That would come out to roughly $11 billion, according to the administration's report.


The sequester would also make significant cuts to programs created by the Affordable Care Act, which are not subject to the 2 percent cap.







Grants to help states establish insurance exchanges — new marketplaces for private insurance coverage — would lose $66 million, the administration said. The law's prevention and public health fund would lose $76 million

Overall "program management" at the agency that oversees Medicare and Medicaid would be cut by more than $60 million if the automatic spending cuts are allowed to go into effect.

Congress exempted Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program from the sequester, but other healthcare programs would have to absorb big hits.

Gee......I'd actually lend that statement a little bit of credibility IF you EVER posted anything similar on the "Romney is bad" threads.

However, you just proved your own hypocrisy.
