In reply to: White House forecasts budget cuts for Georgia »

February 24, 2013

"Unless Congress acts by Friday, $85 billion in cuts are set to take effect from March-September."

BS.

This $85 billion is not a cut, but rather a reduction in the increase in spending.

Furthermore, in the grand scheme of total spending, this would roughly amount to twenty five cents lost by a person with a salary of $100,000.

Not quite the cataclysm the White House is making it out to be, especially when one considers it was Obama's idea to begin with...
