Coming Budget Cuts So Bad Even Gov Agencies That No Longer Exist Will Lose Money

Obama budget cuts

President Obama and liberals in Congress would have us believe the looming $85 billion in budget cuts schedules to go into effect Friday due to what they call sequestration are the absolute worst thing that could happen to this country. Children will go uneducated, old people will die, air craft carriers will sink, subs won't submerge, police won't get paid and firefighters won't have enough water to drink, let alone put out fires and even more. It will be horrible! See our list of 15 disasters Obama is claiming will happen here.

Okay, some of those things are a bit of an exaggeration, but the current administration along with the State Run Media are on a daily effort to scare the entire nation into thinking a measly $85 billion in budget cuts will shut down at least one program, if not several, that affects every man, woman a child in the country. Never mind that we are $1.3 trillion over budget every year since Obama has been President and need to cut at least that much out of his ludicrous spending habits each year, we can't even touch $85 billion in cuts without liberals going apoplectic.

Liberal complaining about these budget woes has gotten so bad that the Office of Management and Budget is even citing cuts in at least one government program that no longer exists. Does that surprise anyone? In a report issued in September of 2012 the office cited that the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million if the sequestration cuts went through, but the only problem is, this agency shut its doors 3 months earlier on June, 15, 2012. So much for truthfulness on this whole budget fiasco. What else is in the government report or what Obama and his cohorts are saying about sequestration is simply not true?

Read more about the bogus report from below:

Acting in compliance with The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, as Reason’s Mike Riggs notes, the OMB in September 2012 delivered a report detailing the effects of the automatic spending cuts to Congress.

“But there’s a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns against would affect an agency that no longer exists–and didn’t exist when the OMB sent its report to congress,” Riggs notes.

“The first line item on page 121 of the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget,” he adds.

Yes, according to the OMB, that’s roughly 8.2 percent of the overall budget cuts. But wait. There’s more!

“[T]he bigger problem is that the National Drug Intelligence Center shuttered its doors on June 15, 2012–three months before the OMB issued its report to Congress,” Riggs notes.
