Capitol janitors making ‘ends meet’ with overtime? Nope - The Washington Post

WaPo: Yep, White House is still lying about janitors Hot Air

Just as sure as the sun will rise from the east again tomorrow, Obama and his WH continue to lie. Look liberal drones, the "everybody does it" excuse can only last for so long. How the hell long are you going to continue to defend a habitual liar?

As long as he remains less of a liar than the right wingers who attack him for lying, he needs no defense.

I think there was a time where I thought you were one of the almost respectable liberals. That time has long passed. You are a hack. You care nothing but for your stupid, twisted agenda. You serve no purpose but to bring this country further down as you continue to prop up people like Obama.

And the purpose you serve would be?

Are you actually naive enough to believe your apparently adored conservatives don't play the same lying game?

Or are you just a garden variety hypocrite?

Yes, he got that statement wrong. He should just admit it and get on with it. Janitors don't earn much overtime pay and won't get their hours cut - for now.

But the overall point still stands that many government workers will see their earnings slashed by unwise and unnecessary cuts that could be redirected to much more necessary things to cut first. Whether they are janitors or clerical workers or security agents is beside the point. Focus on the bigger picture.

You dont get it. Government spending has increased. We have unnecessary positions like calligraphers. Many unnecessary programs. You can not tell me that we dont have plenty of areas that need cut in our government.

But Obama instead uses his pulpit to play scare tactic and liar and say Oh look, the janitor is going to get hurt. The man is not a leader, never had been. He was never serious about cutting spending responsibly. We've seen the email directed at agencies to MAKE IT HURT. They dont give one damn about right, wrong. They care about an agenda.

The bigger picture is that we can not sustain our spending, raising taxes can not be the solution. And citing a janitor losing pay is nonsense. We need to go through every solitary dime, position, program, agency, and cut/budget/get rid of. PERIOD.

He could have used this time to lead, to show he is serious about saving the country. He could of started with cutting unnecessary positions and programs. Directing every agency to go through their budgets deeply. He didnt. Instead, he tries to scare the country, inciting that we cant make big cuts to our government or all hell will break loose.

I dont give a damn what you think a bout me and my non politically correct self. Dont like it, put me on ignore.

What I said was true. Blanket defense and the like of this Administration and others going forward has to friggin stop. Quit covering up for liars and hypocrites. Put your silly agendas aside and think about the future of this country for once.
