In fact, in places where cuts aren’t necessarily going to happen due to the sequester, the Obama administration is instructing the government to cut anyways because they said it would have to happen.
Congressman Tim Griffin (R-AZ) blasted the move from the Obama administration saying, “This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama Administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the Sequester cuts for political gain. Instead of cutting waste, the Administration Obama is hurting workers. President Obama should stop protecting wasteful government spending.”
As Griffin noted in a press release:
The Obama administration needs to spare us of this BS and cut out the theatrics and feaux hysterics.
