So Obama proposed the spending cuts.....that republicans keep saying we need....and now Republicans are mad about the spending cuts, or mad it was his
Yes Obummer proposed the cuts........
Yes republicans keep saying we need them.......
And now republicans are mad about the spending cuts? Not quite......
It's more about what he chooses not to cut....
The following are incredibly stupid things that the federal government is spending money on….
#1 The U.S. government is spending $750,000 on a new soccer field for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay.
#2 The Obama administration plans to spend between 16 and 20 million dollars helping students from Indonesia get master’s degrees.
#3 If you can believe it, the U.S. government has spent $175,587 “to determine if coc aine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky
#4 The U.S. government spent $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California.
#5 The federal government has shelled out $3 million to researchers at the University of California at Irvine to fund their research on video games
such as World of Warcraft. Wouldn’t we all love to have a “research job” like that?
#6 The Department of Health and Human Services plans to spend $500 million on a program that will, among other things, seek to solve the problem of
5-year-old children that “can’t sit still” in a kindergarten classroom.
#7 Fannie Mae is about to ask the federal government for another $4.6 billion bailout, and it will almost certainly get it.
#8 The federal government once spent 30 million dollars on a program that was designed to help Pakistani farmers produce more mangos.
#9 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once gave researchers at the University of New Hampshire $700,000 to study methane gas emissions from dairy
#10 According to USA Today, 13 different government agencies “fund 209 different science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs
— and 173 of those programs overlap with at least one other program.”
The list is a little dated (and there are many), and this is just 10 but still relevant to the topic because it has done nothing but grown.
So to say they are mad it was his idea is just a little short sighted.
The cuts that should see the light of day won't.
And the stupidity death spiral of this country continues.......
I think I will apply for a grant to study if dogs owned by democrats have a fetish for only sniffing their own poo!
