Sequester Math

The sequester seems to be the only way that the rate at which we grow the budget is slowed down.

Even as we begin to make choices, hopefully smart ones, regarding which items will not get increased budgets this year, we have congressional representatives that embarrass themselves and the states they represent by making brain-dead statements that seem to escape their mouths before they think about what they say.

Example: Maxine Waters, one of our esteemed representatives from California, said recently that the sequester would cause 170 million jobs to be lost.

Whoops! She lost a decimal point somewhere.

How would you like her to be doing your tax returns, let alone taking care of your budget?
