"Sequester cuts hit poor, elderly, and cancer patients"

But NOT Obama's vacation plans!

Quit sending funds to Egypt, Pakistan, Libya, Mexico, Yemen, Iraq, and sequester is gone.

It's just that simple.

Obama was offered the opportunity by Republicans to have the authority to decide where the budget cuts could be made in order to minimize this type of negative effect. Strangely, he refused in order to not accept any responsibility. It's the only power he's ever turned down. But by turning it down, he actually does become responsible.

Our tax paying elderly, and cancer patients are being sequestered?

How about sequestering:

* Egypt, Pakistan, Libya, etc
* Obama's upcoming hundred million dollar vacation to Africa?
* IRS conferences

And we trust these people to spy on us?

There have been no real cuts in spending year to year. Obama wants to punish people. I could cut ten percent in a days work. You can see how money is being wasted. No one in the Omama regime is motivated to cut cost or reduce spending. It is really not that hard. All you have to do is really want to do it.
