House Armed Services Republicans Send Obama a Crazy Lying Video


Note the false claim that cuts have already been made.  Cuts to dream budgets are not cuts to actual spending.  Note the use of dollar figures arrived at by combining 10 years of budgets to make possible cuts sound large, as viewers assume a single year's budget is under discussion.  Note the pretense that the automatic cuts will all be made to the military, whereas the law actually permits making them to the State Department and other areas as well.  Note the claim that they will save jobs by cutting 10% of public jobs, as if military jobs are jobs and non-military jobs are not, even though the same dollars produce more jobs when spent in non-military industries. And of course there is no mention here of how enormous U.S. military spending is in comparison with the rest of the world.

Here's the bill: HR3662.  Thanks to Mike Prokosch for pointing this out.
