Another good question: Where was this sequestration thingy when our government was sending $12 billion in cash to Iraq, on pallets of $100 bills on C-130 Cargo planes and then have $8.8 Billion vanish!

Needless to say that was peanuts compared to the bank bailouts of the too big to fail banksters at $16 Trillion - Where was this sequestration when we were, and still are bailing out the banks?

Where?

Sen. Bernie Sanders in July 2011 said: The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

And now all of a sudden the American taxpayers are facing sequestration and we are removing essential services to the people of the US?

Who are we kidding here? We don't have $300 grand to keep an airport safe, but we have Trillions to bailout the banksters?
