Apocalypse soon: Democrats ramp up scare campaign over sequestration cuts

It’s a vast oversimplification, but it works. The sequestration cuts scheduled to take effect next week were split down the middle between defense and non-defense spending to motivate both Democrats and Republicans to find alternative spending cuts. The GOP certainly wouldn’t allow defense programs to be cut, would it? Social programs, sure. Just perform a quick Google search of “sequestration cuts” and you’ll find headlines like “11 Drastic Sequester Cuts Threatening Average Americans” and “‘Meat Cleaver’ Sequestration Cuts to Hit Teachers, FBI Agents.”

Democrats have been trying to pin the “brutal” cuts on the House GOP despite the fact that the sequester originated in the White House. So, what sort of cuts are in store with the #Obamaquester? Let the Dems give you an idea of the post-apocalyptic wasteland that awaits. (Hint: expect food poisoning, cancer and possibly another school massacre.)

Wow, sounds bad. What other nightmares does the #Obamaquester hold?

Scared yet? The unflappable Charles Krauthammer urges you not to be.
