You give him money to apparently -- here -- topless.
Amazing just amazing.
Yeah absolutely and right now we're in DC where the government has called off today federal workers can stay home because of an alleged snowstorm and I drove here -- my way here is definitely no snow on the ground.
The F the government could bode well -- it could be.
It could be it could be in -- -- and get a couple inches out in Northern Virginia and parts of Maryland so why here.
But I tell you that EC had no problem without letting federal workers take the day off today because -- alleged snowstorm.
-- -- political for.
-- -- -- about it but I digress heavily on here we go again.
Where there's a propensity to part of the government to say.
We might inconvenience you but you damn well better not even think of inconveniencing us in getting either tax payment in light -- or think that you can delay.
Any of these health care related taxes that kick in now.
Sure -- -- hysteria about the snow here in DC is about like the hysteria over sequestration.
We're in March and so far the sky's not falling reality -- A Washingtonian -- what we call -- cut here in Washington simply means we're gonna spend less than we originally planned on spending fell yesterday Don.
Thin as senator pointed out that.
This year we're gonna have to spend maybe 85 billion dollars less in Washington.
That's pretty much pocket change because that's the amount that the federal government borrows just about every month so the real crisis here at our national debt how much we continue to borrow.
But we're busy worrying about all the pink slips for teachers and all of the waiting at airports and that's simply not happening -- -- -- -- -- went out we've we've we've would take -- and make no light of the above.
The defense related contractors who will be furloughed.
Through this process but the fact of the matter is in the vast scheme of things in a three point eight trillion dollar budget in a sixty plus trillion dollar debt.
Certain cuts have to be made and -- these are considered draconian.
I think at this point they're barely rounding errors on rounding errors on rounding errors so here we are again.
Where the government is saying we're gonna cut back on White House towards may be shut down some national parks.
Would you American taxpayer -- better get your money in your fast.
Right and this is the dirty little secret of the sequester these include a massive cuts that members of congress.
Don't have to get themselves to.
Pass on their own and -- it was part of this.
The -- super committee trigger kind of a deal that.
The dates back to now almost more than a year ago I -- about the White House tours I don't know how much it costs to keep White House towards running on the weekend but that hasn't really.
This sore point especially for members of congress right because that is at a White House tour you have to go to your members of congress we just data for some family last week and it went -- senator in Indiana and so now what the president has -- -- -- -- -- White House tourists.
He has force members of congress to deliver the bad news and say no to all these families who you know probably spent a couple weeks.
Planning a trip to Washington DC and looking forward to that tour of the east -- -- I just thought that was a little tacky to say nothing of the fact that.
So do you get through your your local congressman your senator.
And I know the president and an executive -- -- controls the ranger budget and the rest of all.
But that just as an arbitrator I provide frankly think the president doesn't like people -- and the White House.
These -- just two months of that but.
-- -- there and there it's arbitrary dates of these cuts and what's vital what's considered important.
That I think Hadley -- put the administration and a bit of a box because any other week it would have been crowing about that is stout.
-- one record after another.
And now it it can't really brag about it because none of this is supposed to happen.
So called sequestration hell week so the one thing it would've left that bragging about it can't.
Right share makes a good point that this could have been avoided this was an automatic.
I'm sort of backstop against what Republicans and Democrats both thought the other side with surrender on there was -- surrender so here we are post sequestration.
We're down to the politics of blame and the White House strategy on debt.
Is just about the same my house strategy on everything manufactured crisis and then blame Republicans thought we're seeing now.
I and -- -- email today congressman Griffin's -- that this is posted this online.
You -- administration has instructed some federal agencies like the USDA.
Listen our position on sequestration is that this is gonna hurt so you better make.
-- -- on the same day or in this Karzai had earlier work and Eric politics of the view on from there -- as the USDA -- -- the worker business you know.
-- -- -- lessen the blow earlier on this you know.
Credit and says and it's appears as well with -- you don't lessen the blow you know just read that we are riot act you know.
It is amazing ladies thank you both very much.
