'Do not contradict what we said the impact would be.'
A perfect example of White House deception when it comes to slowing the growth of government. Do not forget, despite what you hear from the state-controlled proxy media, there are absolutely NO CUTS in the sequester, just a decrease in the planned increase. It's like getting a 3% raise from your boss, and then whining that you got a pay cut because you were expecting 5%.
Ron Paul explained it perfectly on CNBC last week.
Now, on to the story.
The Over-Hyped Sequester Strikes Again
The Washington Times reported on another administration email that seemed to show at least one agency has been instructed to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.
In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of.
“We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that ‘APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs.’ So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be,” Mr. Brown, in the internal email, said his superiors told him.
