An internal government email sent Monday instructed an official with a subdivision of the U.S. Department of Agriculture to make sure that sequester-related cuts inflict as much pain as possible to make sure “you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.”
When Charles Brown of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service asked “if there was any latitude” in how officials might allocate sequester cuts to reduce negatively impacting fish inspections, Brown received the following reply:
“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.”
Lawmakers say the email is further evidence that the Obama Administration is seeking to inflict maximum pain for the minimal $85 billion in cuts.
“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the Sequester cuts for political gain,” said Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AK).
The $85 billion in sequester cuts represents just .5% of the national debt.

yeah, there’s no doubt that Obama’s function is to cause as much pain as possible, and he was chosen for the job because he enjoys doing it.
By now most of the “hope and change” crew realizes they’ve been screwed over and lied to, and that just translates to a lot more people supporting us.
Good job, Obama. You got the whole country to arm themselves against the government by exposing yourself as the cheap whore that you are. I guess you only got into politics because it pays a lot more than selling your flesh in a bath house.
Obama is nothing more than a skinny lop eared punk from Chicago that couldn’t put a sentance together without a joint in his hand.The real master mind is Vallire “they’ll have hell to pay”Jerrett.Ole bat ears has a trap door in the back of his head that gets opened and a prerecorded cassette tape is put in and the key is inserted in his back to wind him up,the play button is pushed and he is kicked on stage to spew the Vallire message.
Don’t kid you’re self she is and has been his handler for a long time.You want to stop the puppet you need to get rid of the puppeteer and the backing she has.This is all about 2014 and getting back the house to be a majority dem run house and then maybe he’ll reach under his chin and pull off the mask.
When it finally does happen, we’re going to need a hell of a lot of rope.
I know people on here like the traditional Western hanging, but I like the European style of the Iron Maiden. Poke a few holes in ’em and make them suffer in the iron casket.
Maybe it was an Egyptian invention. I don’t know. At least I know what CIA, GPS, LCD, and DVD mean. Give me some credit here. lol
Aren’t such “conspiratorial acts” a felony?
Felonies are only punishable by prison time (except in cases of murder and kidnapping)
We’re dealing with treason here.
Hanging offense – every time.
As well in international as in national politics your government acts
like a spoiled child , who gets angry and upset if it doesn’t get it’s way…
Maybe it’s time to grow up???
Perhaps sharia law is a good idea seeings how we will only have stones to throw anyway. Could you imagine 10,000 wall street etc idiots all lined up in the sand begging for mercy, but because of cut backs we have none.
