7 spending cuts you'll really feel

Washington (CNNMoney) - Millions of American families are bracing for the forced budget cuts that could kick in on March 1.

Some of the hardest hit would be 2.1 million federal workers who could be spending up to 22 business days at home without pay on a furlough.

    The GOP in action- allow a piece of your legislation to take effect that will negatively affect millions of citizens and government workers, or, how to lose even more voters than your twisted message has already turned off.

    We'll miss you GOP- but not too much!

    The federal need their jobs also, all the white leaders is talking about during people hard working money. All the congress during signing papers to hurt the working people. Obama is not going to hurt the poor people hes fighting the white house leaders to the end.

    Obama bloated the federal government, unnecessarily, and now cuts to that bloating, are not only needed, they are essential.

    The biggest threat to this nation's security is the Congress. Blame the president all you want, but. despite vehment accusations to the contrary, Pres. Obama is not a dictator who can force legislation into law however he sees fit. The budget is entirely under the control of the Congress, specifically the House of Representatives, from where the Constitution mandates that alll revenue related bills must originate.

    It is worth noting that this method of budgeting through one fiscal crisis after another did not start until the Tea Party came to DC and took over the House.

    So ! Let them join all the other people that have been out of work who have been suffering because of Obama's policies. Let them know that government can't always provide all their wishes. Public workers are no better than anyone else, I say let sequestration happen and stop this dictator in his tracts !
