Obama Fiddles While The Country Burns: Lawmakers Vote For Vacation Over Sequester Talks

The new House and Senate voted on Friday to recess for the President’s Day week. That means that when they return they have a mere 4 days to deal with the $85bn sequester that is due on March 1st.

If it comes into effect it would mean that huge across the board cuts will take place across Federal government with no real control over what can or can’t be cut. These cuts are so massive there is a distinct possibility they could force the US back into recession, most likely carrying the rest of the world along with it.

A raft of economists have warned that pulling that much money out of effective circulation will have grave economic consequences. The President has warned that job losses will be high and that Americans will feel the impact in many aspects of their lives.

To add to the problems the government will once again run out of money at the end of march, forcing another negotiation on raising the debt ceiling.

Cutting Federal staffing levels will impact the public in most areas of their lives. Air traffic control and airport security cuts  could according to some observers cause delays of several hours at airports. There are worries that the food supply chain could be hit if port inspectors and administration staff find themselves out of a job.

This seems a very odd time for lawmakers to take a holiday when such major issues are looming. Just another example of the them and us attitude displayed by the leaders of this country.  Nowhere other than in government can you find displays of such crass and wanton disregard for the ‘workers’ as you can find in the seats of power around the globe.

    Another piece of the puzzle finding its place and being pressed in.

    It is Congress who should have their paycheck docked or held back until they finish their job. The hardworking federal empolyees should not be punished for Congress refusing to get their jobs done.

      The problem is most of them are millionaires, and don’t need the money they make from their day jobs.
