Far from being a set of real spending cuts, the sequester amounts to phony political showmanship that only hikes taxes and spending further, said Carla Howell, executive director of the Libertarian National Committee, from a Press TV article on Monday:
“When both Democrats and Republicans so-called come together, what we get is more tax increases and more government spending.
“The Republicans are putting up false resistance when in fact they have gone along for years with racking up trillions of dollars in new government debt, increasing taxes and increasing current spending.
“The sequester is the latest manipulation by both Democrats and Republicans to avoid cuts and to raise government spending. They’re using this drama to try to scare Americans into believing that spending cuts are bad … the exact opposite of the truth.
“The Libertarian Party is the only party in America dedicated to dramatically downsizing Big Government and making government small. We must dramatically and immediately cut government spending to balance the budget, then keep cutting — removing every Big Government program that’s doing more harm than good. This will stimulate economic growth and create millions of private-sector jobs.”
Join the Libertarian Party today to fight back against Big Government by supporting real solutions that slash government spending and regulation immediately.
