QotD, You Should Hear What The ACTUAL Rocket Scientists Are Saying About The Sequester.

The one that I’m married to will give you an earful: if anything, she’s more annoyed than South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is at Barack Obama over his game-playing about the “budget”.

“I could not be more frustrated than I am right now,” Haley told reporters after the meeting. She said that when she asked Obama if he would consider a last-minute plan to shave about 2 percent from the annual federal budget without increasing taxes, the answer was “no.”

“My kids could go and find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget,” Haley said. “This is not rocket science.”

Read the whole thing; especially Gov. Haley’s ah, exasperated comments about Congress taking the last week off. Fair warning: my wife the rocket scientist agrees with THAT, too.

  • Cameron says:

    Let us just say that I am checking the budget and am prepared for the worst.

  • jbird says:

    You ought to be able to cut $85 bn pretty simply considering all the redundency in the system. Across the board is a pretty dumb thing to implement. But then Obama’s counter offer is tax increases. . . which isn’t really a counter he expects republicans to take.

  • DemosthenesVW says:

    Agreed with everything. Let’s not forget, though, that just because Congress took the last week off doesn’t mean its members did. I know mine was busy all over the district.

    Heh, I’m all ready broke, so to hell with it, anyway, and to hell with the idiot occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C. I know where the fault lies……….
