Sequestration Equals Exactly What NeoLibs Have Been Advocating Forever



Sequestration a puzzle to you?

Bet it's not to the Neolibs in charge.

And certainly not to the American Everyman:

You’ll notice that most of the sequestration plan falls under the category of Redirection of public spending, but much of it also contributes to the overall agenda of destabilizing various public institutions with an eye on the eventual privatization.
Almost all of the cuts to Obamacare center around removing any real “socialist” or “universal healthcare” aspects of that plan which simply goes to show they had this in mind long ago when they set the start date for Obamacare to 2014.

General deregulation is also a key aspect to this plan. The list above doesn’t do this justice, you can find far more examples of how the Obama administration is gutting the regulatory infrastructure with this sequestration plan if you go read the official White House version of the plan. But there are certainly enough on this list to show what I am talking about:

  • $57 million cut from the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control
  • $61 million cut from the Hazardous Substance Superfund at EPA
  • $53 million cut from Salaries and Expenses at the Food Safety and Inspection Service
  • $512 million cut from Customs and Border Protection
  • $604 million cut from National Nuclear Security Administration
  • $232 million cut from the Federal Aviation Administration
  • $394 million cut from Defense Environmental Cleanup
This plan has nothing to do with the deficit as the White House memo notes it won’t touch the deficit, just how quickly it increases. But that of course is based on numbers expected to increase. As we all know, there is likely to be another bailout on top of the ongoing 80 billion dollar a month bailout still taking place today. There will be others. So this plan has nothing to do with the deficit. It has EVERYTHING to do with recreating this country in the model they have been working on for years.

This is just a small sampling of the “dumb” cuts that are going to be implemented in the very near future. It is specifically why Obama was ordained to be the president of the United States following Bush and Cheney. McCain and Romney could NEVER have gotten away with doing this via executive order which is essentially what happened. But Obama the “Progressive” could.

Sorry, but this piece is a delusion. People in Hollywood think about one thing only, and that is how to sell tickets. With very rare exceptions (the recent movie about Edward R. Murrow, for instance) they make what they think people want to see.

That's the whole story. Really.

Unless they don't?

Like the Murrow movie made by Clooney.
