Sequestration thoughts

To the Editor: President Barack Obama and his officials are doing their best to drum up public concern over the shock wave of spending cuts.  

I don't think President Obama gets it yet.

The Republicans gave him the extra spending money in January he requested, stating in March they would need budget cuts. Most of our citizens know we need and must have spending cuts to survive this great nation we have. The outrageous spending has been out of control for 5 years and gets worse each year.  We know it. Why doesn't he know it? We know very well in our households if we overspend one month, it's almost impossible to catch up. It could become a pattern if not stopped right now.  

On the first day after the Inaugural why didn't all the Congress start cuts, easy ones, just start? Let the cutting begin. It's amazing that our President has refused to meet with Congress. Friday, March 1, was the first time he met with Congress since the election. He doesn't seem to have time or he doesn't like to talk too them, am not sure what's up. He loves to keep traveling to make his pitch around the country. Why doesn't he stay home, talk to the Democrats & Republicans, debate what is best for our country. Just get at it, get something done.  

Cut the darn spending.
