It struck me recently that I hadn’t posted one of Bill’s excellent Afterburner videos in a while, so here’s a good one to get re-started with. In it, Bill looks at the cuts made, so the administration claims, due to the devastating effects of sequestration and asks, “If things are so tough we have to furlough Border Patrol agents, how come the president can spend our tax dollars on his vacations?” (1)
Remember, kiddies: the sequestration is not a cut in spending, but a cut in the rate of increase of spending. Funny, isn’t it? We could afford that aircraft carrier and the White House tours last year, when we were spending less that we are under sequestration….
(1) To ask that question, of course, is racist. Naturally.
