How Sequester Could Impact Freehold

If spending cuts take effect on March 1, education, health and environmental programs in Monmouth could be hit.

Sequestration spending cuts scheduled to go into effect on March 1 would halt $85 billion in funding. In a statement issued Sunday, the White House said New Jersey would lose $30 million in education funding and see 11,000 civilian Department of Defense jobs furloughed.

As expected, Democrats paint the absolute worst, disingenuous picture possible as a scare tactic. If you believe them, we'll lose millions of jobs and everyone will be out on the street. In fact, the good that will be done is that we will begin to stop the spending madness while we begin to expect self reliance.

The spending maddnesss needs to end. This is all hype.....the only cuts are in projected increases in spending over the next 10 yrs. The US will still spend more next year than this year. My household spending has had to be cut way more than 2 percent over 10 years.

Good that's $30 Million less for the already bloated school districts to get their grubby hands on, and 11,000 less salaries to pay.
