    Default Budget cuts...

    SO, is anyone here aware of ANY federal budget cuts that are being proposed by either Congress/Senate OR the sitting USERPER???

    I wonder what OlameO is keeping busy with over the last several weeks since he "fixed" the fiscal cliff situation...

    Below is a White House-provided fact sheet listing his "executive actions."

    Gun Violence Reduction Executive Actions

    Today, the President announced that he and the administration will:

    Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
    Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.
    Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
    Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
    Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
    Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.
    Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
    Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
    Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
    Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
    Nominate an ATF director.
    Provide law enforcement, first responders and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
    Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
    Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
    Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
    Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
    Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
    Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
    Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
    Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
    Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
    Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
    Launch a national dialogue led by [Human Services Secretary Kathleen] Sebelius and [Education Secretary [Arne] Duncan on mental health.

    Cuts? Ha ha.
    George Stephanopoulus had a "fact check" where he claimed there were recently $1.5 trillion worth of "cuts."

    Let's try this: In 2012 we vote to cut $100 of spending for 2013. Then in 2013 we vote to go ahead and spend the $100 on something anyway. How much $ has been cut?
    If you said $0, you can't have a talk show.

    You can't make a third-world crap hole our of America by cutting government spending or balancing budgets. You do it by raising debt ceilings then overspending the new ceiling in less than a year - by weakening the constitution with executive orders in direct conflict - by covering up your impeachable affairs such as "Fast and Furious" and "Benghazi" and silencing testimony with executive orders and concussions and you do it by ignoring budgets while economic conditions worsen and unemployment climbs.

    The are right on track to satisfy what democrats really want.

    Oh, by the way, the rich guys will still be rich. They will just reside in different countries. They are way smarter than democrat leaders.
