Economy Slow Down Predicted As Sequester Looms

US President Barack Obama is calling on Congress to take action to prevent billion in automatic spending cuts — known as the “sequester” — from going into effect on March first. The sequester deadline resulted from a battle over raising the debt ceiling in August of 2011. Congress and the president agreed on a future threat of severe mandatory budget cuts as a way of forcing action to cut the national deficit. But the threat did not work, and now, the cuts are poised to happen within days — unless Congress finds an elusive compromise to cut spending. VOA Congressional Correspondent Cindy Saine has the story.]]

Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano issued veiled threats ahead the March 1 sequestration deadline, claiming that in automatic budget cuts could trigger new terror attacks, delay travel and render customs & border unable to enforce immigration laws (as the White House hypocritically mulls amnesty that would cost several trillion). The intent of Napolitano’s speech to intimidate a mere billion in budget cuts with the threat of new attacks was clear, despite her claims to the contrary. “I’m not here to scare people; I’m here to inform and let people begin to plan,” Napolitano stated. “I don’t think we can maintain the same level of security at all places around the country with sequester compared to without sequester.”

Sequester Looms, Bill O’reilly Correct “takers” Vs. The “makers”

PoliticsNation | Aired on February 27, 2013 As sequester looms, O’Reilly goes back to ‘takers and makers’ Rev. Al Sharpton and Mother Jones’ David Corn talk about Bill O’Reilly’s reversion back to election rhetoric, talking about Americans as “takers” as automatic budget cuts are about to kick in, and how it seems the GOP still can’t accept that they lost the election.

Under current US law, automatic cuts to domestic programs and national defense will begin in 2013, because a congressional committee failed to agree on trimming America’s federal deficit. Already, many lawmakers say they want to shield favored federal programs from the budget ax, despite a veto threat from President Barack Obama.
