White House Report Claims Sequestration Will Affect Federal Department That No Longer Exists … National Drug Intelligence Center Closed Prior to OMB Report

 

THE SEQUESTRATIO LIE:

Isn’t this typical coming from our over-bloated and insincere federal government … the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget. Sounds terrible doesn’t it? There is just one important fact that they left out .., the department does not exists as it shut its doors in June 2012. How much are you willing to bet that there are many more departments just like this that our less than precise and thorough federal government has missed?

If you want a thorough agency-by-agency rundown of the budget cuts sequestration would deliver, the Office of Management and Budget has you covered. In compliance with The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, the OMB sent a detailed report to Congress in September 2012. But there’s a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns against would affect an agency that no longer exists–and didn’t exist when the OMB sent its report to congress.

The first line item on page 121 of the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget. While that’s slightly more than 8.2 percent (rounding error or scare tactic?), the bigger problem is that the National Drug Intelligence Center shuttered its doors on June 15, 2012–three months before the OMB issued its report to Congress.

As Weasel Zippers remarks, it would seem that  Sequestration has mastered time travel. The sad fact is that out bloated and out of control, oversized federal government has got so big that no one knows just how big it is or what is actually going on. Imagine what would happen if an outside consultant came in like Bain Capital to streamline processes?
