Outraged, not surprised
To the Editor:
I am outraged by the actions of our president relative to “sequestration,” but not surprised. The president and Congress agreed to a 2.4 percent reduction in this year’s spending. To hear him talk about it, you would think the country could not possibly survive.
First, Congress is still going to spend more money this year than last. Second, didn’t we all just take a 2 percent pay cut on Jan. 1 when our Social Security tax went up 2 percent? Maybe it’s the extra 0.4 percent that is so unbearable.
