DOE Favorite: We Received An Additional $10 Million - Because of Sequestration

While the administration has been taking a 'sky is falling' approach regarding the effects of the sequestration, one Department of Energy (DOE) contractor has claimed that the financial cuts had little effect on their operations.  In fact, Daniel Coyne, President of the B&W West Valley division for CH2M Hill, claimed that his company actually received an additional $10 million in funding because of it.

Sequestration Might Turn White House Chef Into a Spy or Something

It has been a harrowing six weeks for the nation, what with the sequestrapocalyse and all. As of March 1, our underfunded federal government was forced to slash indispensible initiatives such as robot squirrels, pickle specifications and cowboy poetry.

Sequestration is Still Not a Credible Danger

One would have hoped that after a couple of weeks the overblown brouhaha over the consequences of the sequestration cuts would have died down, but alas, there are those still insistent that the meager $85 billion in cuts will somehow result in a cataclysmic shock to the American economy.

Obama's Motives After Sequestration Clear - Punish America, Reward Everyone Else

Never before have the sentiments of this 'politics over prosperity' President been more clear than in the aftermath of the sequestration debate. Since the reality of the $85 billion cuts across government departments, agencies and programs has set in, the President has set a clear and convincing course in trying to punish Americans in a very public manner, for the concept of reigning in government spending, and has continued to reward those outside our country.

More Layoffs For Environmental Project That Received $2 Billion in Stimulus Funds

Despite having received nearly $2 billion in stimulus funding, contractors at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation cleanup project in Richland, Wash., have consistently hemorrhaged jobs over the past couple of years as taxpayer dollars dried up, and companies had to return to more realistic budgets.  And while this has been a consistent pattern established for years now, a new round of a couple hundred layoffs at the site is being attributed to - you guessed it - sequestration.

A Few Good Men

Seven US Marines died and several others were injured when a mortar round exploded in its tube during a training exercise in Nevada on March 18th. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) took to the floor of the Senate and in a move of incredible political cynicism, blamed the deaths on sequestration.In effect, the Senator blamed the Marines involved for their own deaths.

The Continuing Resolution and Sequestration

Despite every attempt by congressional Republican leaders to preemptively surrender, the fight to get a sane Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund only the necessary parts of government is not over. Senate Democrats and the White House, not content with victory, are pushing for even more spending and taxes, giving reformers an opportunity.

Children As Political Pawns: Sequestration Style

To hear the president tell it, you would have thought the world was going to end the day the sequestration went into effect.  When the world actually went on and the president's dire warnings became even more laughable, the White House responded with the emotional maturity we've come to expect from this administration: they canceled White House tours.

The Fears over Sequestration are Unwarranted

With the sequester set to take effect on March 1st, many politicians and pundits are acting like the world is going to end. But the American people should have no fear: this is just another one of Washington’s manufactured crises.

Key Vote NO on Replacing the Sequester with Higher Taxes

Dear FreedomWorks member,As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to vote NO on the “American Family Economic Protection Act”, S. 388. This bill would replace much of the decreased spending of sequestration with tax increases on the highest income earners, while also exempting favored programs from any cuts.
