this happens at the local level. people are pushed into a corner about tax increases or the library will be closed or fireman Mike will have to get on food stamps.

the govt will sensationalize something to drum up fear due to stupidity and the masses fall for it time and time again.

maybe job losses and things falling apart that quickly sort of expose how horribly ran some of these areas are ran. nah. nobody will look at it like that. not with political party glasses.

in other news

Democratic Florida Congressman Alan Grayson told HuffPost Live on Friday that he believes the automatic spending cuts triggered by sequestration should be replaced with a bill to immediately end the war in Afghanistan.

"Listen, we're facing a nine percent cut in the food stamps program, a nine percent cut in home heating oil programs, nine percent cut in civil aeronautics, nine percent cuts in all sort of things that people actually use in their everyday lives -- and we'd save the same amount of money if we simply ended the war in Afghanistan now," Grayson told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski.

"What's the point?" Grayson continued. "Can't we at least make intelligent choices and get our priorities straight?"
Grayson said his amendment, which was blocked by Republicans before it could go to a vote, would call for ending the war in 30 days, unless President Barack Obama felt this would put American servicemen and women's lives at risk.

We're leaving anyways, it's going to be about as messed up there as when we came in, so yeah there is some kind of logic there if we were really serious about cuts.

How much more than 3.8 trillion dollars annually is needed to keep programs from being underfunded?

That's like asking:

How much more than 250 a month is needed to make your car payment?

The answer is: However much the car actually costs per month. The "250" is just a number I pulled out of thin air.

How much of your children's future is worth putting on their credit card for this "car" that they'll likely never drive?
