Today Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte spoke together at Fayetteville Technical Community College in order to instill fear and panic over impending budget cuts to the military. The 3 Senators are on a hype fest to manipulate the public to prevent the military budget from being reduced. They also plan to speak in VA, FL and NH. Re the hype check out how this was sold by the NC Military Business Center:
The Senators will discuss the potentially devastating impact of inaction by Congress and the Administration on the looming Fiscal Year 2013 budget sequester, which would result in an additional $500 billion in automatic defense budget cuts beginning in January 2013. The Senators will discuss how inaction on sequestration would seriously risk national security, eliminate over two million jobs in our struggling economy, potentially devastate the defense industry in North Carolina (the second largest sector of the state economy) and break faith with the men and women of our Armed Forces and their families.When a local Patriot told me that these 3 Senators were scheduled to speak and the public was invited I decided to attend.
