President Obama doesn't mind passing the buck, but he sure hates cutting them! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. The White House has an interesting idea for solving the budget crisis: panicking people. With the sequester cuts set to kick in next week, the President has been busy scaring America with ridiculous claims of what controlling spending will do. The administration claimed that veterans will go hungry, meat will spoil, schools won't have teachers--and last week, President Obama even said criminals would go loose. Republicans agree the sequester was a dangerous way to cut spending. That's why the House passed a plan to replace it with other savings. Senate Democrats wouldn't consider it, because they'd rather hike more taxes. "No one should be talking about raising taxes," said John Boehner. When the government is giving folks free cell phones and buying $97,000 outhouses, I guess when push comes to shove; the only thing liberals are really interested in saving is face.
