The first $3700 billion we're spending might not do much, but look what happens if we don't spend the other $85 billion we don't have:
Plagues, locusts and famine.
Note that even with the $85 billion sequester, we will still spend MORE next year than this. More math the media doesn't understand. Sad.
Everyone is trying to out-do the other guy in speaking for all the recipients of Government spending, but who speaks for the taxpayer?
