Obama forced to lock in deep spending cuts

in Uncategorized by

President Obama is set to sign a government funding measure that leaves in place the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration — a policy that undermines many of the goals he laid out during the 2012 campaign, the Washington Post reports.

“Obama thinks the cuts are, in his words, ‘dumb,’ and he says they will slow the economy and harm priorities by cutting spending on education, research and development, and many other programs. Yet Obama now finds himself enacting a broad domestic policy that he doesn’t support and that he believes will harm the country.”
