The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Let them eat birthday cake

Written By: Bob - Mar• 13•13

President Barack Obama has directed the federal government to “make it hurt” when it comes to the sequester, cutting funding for essential instead of non-essential funding first in a temper tantrum over his free-spending ways.

He’d already cut White House tours (while still continuing the $277,000 employment of the White House calligrapher), and has otherwise gone Chris Brown on the American people.

The latest target of his ire is combat veterans:

They fought for their country, and now they’re feeling the sting of sequester.

The $85 billion in cuts that went into effect at the beginning of the month will not spare soldiers and veterans, with a wave of cuts being announced for tuition assistance and a program that helps homeless veterans get back on their feet.

The Pentagon for months warned that the sequester cuts would be catastrophic. But the Defense Department is not the only federal agency with programs for servicemen and women that are vulnerable.

Under a federal housing program that helps roughly 100,000 Americans, homeless and formerly homeless veterans will lose assistance due to the sequester. The program is run by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and provides state grants to help veterans get housing.

Not feeling any pain? Illegal aliens, welfare queens, and other key Obama constituencies.

He’s also making sure that the cuts don’t affect his personal budget or his family’s continual outrage of indulgences, including the huge 50th birthday party for the First Lady next year:

The same week that President Obama’s administration announced that due to sequestration, White House tours would be cancelled, sources at the White House announced that it would be hosting megastars Adele and Beyonce at Michelle’s 50th birthday party next year. “America’s First Lady will be holding a huge celebrity-packed party for her birthday at the White House next year and, as she adores Adele and Beyonce, she has asked them both to sing,” the source told the UK Daily Mail. The source did say that “The Obamas will pay Adele’s expenses as it’s a private party, not a State one.”

Whether the First Couple is paying for Adele’s expenses is irrelevant; they’re throwing the party at the White House using taxpayer money, staff, and security. We’re paying for the circus; they’re only paying for a clown.

All while 100,000 veterans will be thrown out on the street.

    The good news is that “they” are paying their fair share!

    “White House aides owe the IRS $333,000 in back taxes…

    Death before slavery!

    Bob, thank you for summarizing the laundry list of offences that Obama & Co have inflicted upon us during his sequester (which Obama spawned himself!). I don’t know how you can write about these events without vomiting on your keyboard. Lord knows after I read about Obama and Michelle’s birthday bash I wanted to throw up. The insolence of these people knows no bounds.

    Anyone who believes that the Dear Party Leader in the dark house are paying for ANYTHING out of their own pockets for that party probably also think obumble was born in Hawaii, heh, heh, heh.
    I mean why would they want to break their perfect lifetime-as-leeches record?

    I hate to point it out but Obama is a typical black leader much like Mugabe in Zimbabwe. They take advantage of their power and live to enjoy it while the people starves and the country goes to shambles.
