Email tells feds to make sequester as painful as promised - Washington Times
He said he was discouraged by officials in Washington, who gave him this reply: We have gone on record with a notification to Congress and whoever else that APHIS would eliminate assistance to producers in 24 states in managing wildlife damage to the aquaculture industry, unless they provide funding to cover the costs. So it is our opinion that however you manage that reduction, you need to make sure you are not contradicting what we said the impact would be.
Are you freaking kidding me? So the simple premise would be "We told them it was going to be bad so make sure it IS bad."?
And they go on to say, essentially, "We are trying to make it as painless as possible but we probably won't be able to inspect meat so that will be in short supply."
Man, those of you who still believe that a gigantic government is your friend had better be paying attention because this is the antithesis of governance and is running headlong into "ruling".
