He claims that he has "no choice' but to lay off food safety inspectors if the sequester goes into effect.

Really? No in the entire Food and Drug Administration can be laid off other food safety inspectors?

And there is no way to cut costs except by lay offs?

Are you fucking kidding me?

Obama and Lew dreamt up the sequester a while back. IMO, that was so that Obama could get on with his campaign without any actual pesky tax increases or slashes to social safety nets that he might have to deal with on the campaign trail. All would still be theoretical and handled easily with general statements and platitudes.

However, that was many months ago. Not having a cost cutting plan from each department review and ready to put into effect in case the supposedly unthinkable happened was inexcusable. And that plan should have to do the least ossible harm to Mr. and Ms. Sixpack, not the most possible. The most possible harm seems to be the game plan.

I guess dying quickly from bad food will make dying slowly from lack of nutritious food, medical care and heat look good in comparison.

Seriously, why do we still pay the salaries, fringes, pensions, etc. of these fucks?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
