Sequester isn't about amount. After all, our genius of a Treasury Secretary and criminal of a Federal Reserve Bank chairman have collectively added
over 80 BILLION PER MONTH in slush spending to buy bad debt and busted mortgages. That is since September by just Q-E 3 and operation Twist. So EACH
MONTH has about the same being spent, off the books and clear into fantasy land debt figures than sequester seems to be aimed at.
The problem isn't the amount but WHAT the amount is targeted at. It isn't a matter of "cut xx% from budgets". They designed this nightmare well to
try and force deals to be made so no one would allow this to happen. Why? The cuts are SPECIFIC and targeted. How much damage can 85 billion really do
in cuts? We're about to find out because the cuts are SPECIFIC to those areas MOST damaged by them. It's a factor many people aren't appreciating
while focused purely on dollar amounts, IMO.
