The Trith? Charles Can’t Handle The Trith. [Updated]

Dork Falcon is correct. Charles is ignorant.
How ’bout a quick review of the history of The Sequester?

It began with The Budget Control Act of 2011:

…enacted August 2, 2011, is a federal statute in the United States that was signed into law by President Barack Obama on August 2, 2011. The Act brought conclusion to the United States debt-ceiling crisis of 2011, which had threatened to lead the United States into sovereign default on or around August 3, 2011.

The law involves the introduction of several complex mechanisms, such as creation of the Congressional Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (sometimes called the “super committee”), options for a balanced budget amendment and automatic budget sequestration. [wiki]

The Trith?

Charles (not the journalist) Johnson cites a New York Times editorial from July 2012, a piece that reads more like an anonymous letter to the editor, contains blatant fallacies and offers no sources to back up the disproven claims. (In fact, despite threats of massive numbers of government employees being layed off due to the Sequester, only ONE has been reported in all federal agencies.)

Oh, and Charles, who caused the debt ceiling crisis that spawned the Budget Control Act?

Charles (not the journalist) Johnson is a lying sack of, well, himself.

[Update: Yeah, we slogged back into The Swamp and found more lies.]

Sequestration at LGF 2Um, Fuckface, the simple fact is that you don’t know what you’re talking about, and you’re wrong again. Carry on, Charles. We eat this stuff up.
