Time for Washington to drop the scare tactics

I am writing about the imagined doomsday that sequester has become. First and foremost, this is a product that came straight from Obama during the fiscal cliff avoidance we faced some time ago. The Administration seems to want to blame this all on the other side, when in fact it is their creation.

Another point to ponder is the doom and gloom that the left has spewed on this issue. We are told about these massive cuts. These are not cuts at all. We will still be spending the same amount of money as we did last year. The only “cut” is in the percentage of increase that the government will spend.

Bob Woodward tried to explain what the administration was up to, and he has been ridiculed and attacked by the left. Woodward used to be a hero of the left, he brought down Nixon.

The message that the press gets as a result of this kind of tactic is, “Tow the line or else.” We, the American people lose. We are lied to by the Administration and the press helps out of fear of reprisal. Enough is enough. It is time for these games to end.
