The Horror: Listeners reveal the impact the sequester has had on their lives

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Today is the big day and callers from all over the country shared their oh-so tragic sequestration stories. From extra clouds rolling in to the four horses of the apocalypse rounding people up, callers were suffering through the devastating effects of those massive 2% government cuts a cut of a spending increase, by the way.

“Well, I hope I can be okay. If John Boehner steps up and does something because my ‑‑ I’ll tell you what happened. My fake online girlfriend’s brother texted me and said that if this sequester goes through, the hospital’s going to have to pull the plug on her,” said one caller. “She has malignant acne. It’s horrible and she’s dyin’ and they’re going to have to pull the plug. John Boehner, I’ve got a message for you! You better step up and do something because her fake [ BLEEP ] is in your hands.”

“John Boehner, you’re a bastard if you don’t do it. Please save her,” Glenn said.

    Did anyone see Obama speech today? It was like watching a child throw a tantrum fit after Dad said no.

    The only effect the sequester has had on me is the griping and whining of Obama for the next six-months of “Blame the Republicans, its their fault even if it was my idea…”

    Obama’s idea
    Obama’s mess
    Obama’s fault
    Obama’s responsibility

    Obama is a complete pathological narcissist, sociopath, liar and murderer; he has once again proven himself incapable of holding the office of the Presidency. 

    Look for him to use executive order this weekend to seize more power ‘to deal with the emergency of sequestration.’

    I was thinking more of a song akin to this…

    “And so the man he said, I am the master of the human race…and it was heil (fart) heil (fart) in Obama’s face…”

    Calling it a tantrum is an insult to any tantrum; Obama demonstrated his true narcissistic self today in full.

  • SoThere

    Obama’s the President, this was his idea, it’s his responsibility to protect the Nation, repair the economy and he needs to do whatever is necessary to keep us all safe. HE JUST FAILED TO DO THAT!

    He’s a failure as a President!

    Everyone lost 2% of their pay check because that POS in the WH did nothing to stop it! And now that POS is whining all over the place because the budget will not grow this measly 2.5%! what an idiot! and to think that that POS will continue to spend money like there is no tomorrow! he and that baboon of his! especially on all those expensive vacations (sending the poor dog in a separate airplane!) – they are just ghetto and occupying the WH!
    It is time to arrest them and their accomplices and put them in prison for all the crimes they have committed.

    Civilians working for the military will be furloughed one day per week and see 20% less in pay.  They will lose 10% of their vacation time due to the cutback in working hours.  They will continue to pay the full amount for life and health insurance.  (My spouse pays almost $800 a month for our family health plan). There is no lay-off, just hourly cutbacks.  No one will qualify for unemployment.  Now it’s easy for many to make disparaging remarks about federal employees’ pay.  The vast majority of folks in the middle America do NOT make big bucks like in D.C. The AVERAGE salary in D.C. is 10-15% above the very highest paid federal worker in mid-America.  Not complaining because we are empty nesters, but I feel badly for those young families who depend on that extra 20%, especially when gas and food prices are so high.

    OMG!! We are vacationing in San Juan, PR, and at about 5pm local time on Friday, the bus driver walked off the bus we were waiting for, and walked out of the bus terminal. I guess he was furloughed or layed off. No other driver was available, we were told. So we had to gang up with 6 other people, and put 8 of us in a cab, at $3 each, instead of the local bus fare of $0.75 each. That makes sequestration cost us 400% more for our bus fare for 3 miles. Thanks Obama!!!!! :-~

  • Steve Wurst

    Who fed you that Crock of S__T?? The sequester is 1.6% of “GROWTH” cutback. Not current spending cutbacks. You must be a DUMB-O-Crat!!!

    Why are you so snotty?  I’m a hard core conservative.  The DOD IS preparing furlough letters for their civilian employees.  But you don’t have to believe me, please do a search for “Department of Defense Civilian Furlough” and pick an article or two to read and inform yourself.  Here, I’ll help you out…

    I’m no expert on the “sequestor”  and I’m not afraid of what might happen, but I think we should be somewhat cautious of laughing and making so much fun about it because we do not know yet where the cuts will be. I have no doubt that if Obama and his robots get their way, the cuts will be made where the most harm will be done to the  people and the country so the Democrats will have more accusations to throw at the Republicans in the next election.   I do hope I am wrong!!!

    Just wait, they ain’t seen nothing yet.  The ignorant people think that the apocalypse is going to happen, they will surely know it when it does.   All HELL will break lose and everyone on earth will know when it happens.  Just wait it is coming…

     not getting into it. teapublicans are blind anyway it wont do any good. at least im aware of the type of insanity i deal with.

    There’s some room for joking about Democrats exaggeration of the immediate effects of sequestration.  But the CBO and FED both are stating 0.6% reduction in the 2.5% growth rate of GDP, which is significant and around 700,000 job loss if it continues over several months.  The effects of sequestration will directly effect some people hard, no joke.

    Obama is spending his political equity and I think the stalemate will reflect more negatively for Republicans based on having lost senate seats in the last election.

    http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/politics/2011/March/Govt-Spends-200-Billion-on-Duplicate-Programs/

    Tuesday’s House vote coincided with a report from the GAO, identifying redundant federal programs and services if consolidated or eliminated, could save taxpayers potentially hundreds of billions of dollars.

    For example, the GAO report found:

    80 federal programs to improve teacher quality.
    80 programs to help the disadvantaged with transportation.
    100 different programs to fund highway and rail projects.
    “There are 100 programs for surface transportation at the department of transportation but yet everyone talks about our failing infrastructure,” said Tom Schatz, president of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste.

    The report also found that the Small Business Administration and the Departments of Agriculture and Commerce spent $6.5 billion last year on 80 overlapping programs for economic development.

    Schatz said the report offers more evidence of the waste in Washington, often by creating new programs even where some already exist.

    “The solution in Washington is not to consolidate and improve,” he said. “The solution is to create, and in doing so, they continue to fund old programs that don’t work.”

    The GAO report also cited Congress as the main problem in Washington, D.C.’s culture of spending.

    It’s not a revenue problem, it’s a spending problem. Dozens of duplicate government programs costing hundreds of billions of dollars can be cut.

    The truth is This is Obama’s fault! The House passed 2 bills last year but they were stopped from consideration in the Senate! Harry Reid (the religious Mormon) blocked them from being heard in the Senate.

    Blame the Democrats, it’s Obama’s bill, he signed it you bigoted racist!

    What you’re saying that there are smarter ways to cut government spending than sequestration.

    Congress is completely dysfunctional. The only people who are did anything remotely serious to stop the sequester are Senate Democrats, but they can’t even put pressure on House Republicans because a handful of old-timers blocked filibuster reform, giving Senate Republicans veto power.

  • Vae retardari asinus

    This never had to happen is what I’m saying, It’s all Obama and the Democraps fault.

    Harry Reid the (religious MORMON) and Obama are at fault. You so have a problem reading don’t you bigot?

    The House passed two bills last year in an attempt do stop the sequester. Harry Reid the (religious MORMON) blocked it from being heard in the Senate. Did you get it this time racist?

     As a Libertarian – I don’t care where the cuts come from.  Just cut it.

    My family took a pay cut. It is a big one as well. We are in the Military and I guess thats where he put that 2% So it did get to our family. I wish he would have taken Paul Ryans idea and prioritizing the cuts so that Military would not be the first to get hit. This is our Pay check. Just not fair. With, Bills food price,gas and three kids I don’t know what we will do. I can not even stand to hear the Presidents name anymore! I see why you have a money jar for that now Mr. Beck.
