Another federal employee has come forward to claim the Obama administration resisted efforts to ease the impact of sequester.
A U.S. park ranger, who did not wish to be identified, told FoxNews.com that supervisors within the National Park Service overruled plans to deal with the budget cuts in a way that would have had minimal impact on the public. Instead, the source said, park staff were told to cancel special events and cut “interpretation services” — the talks, tours and other education services provided by local park rangers.
“Apparently, they want the public to feel the pain,” the ranger said.
My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised. Another peek into the kleptocratic state being run out of the Obama White House.
Any business under financial pressure will try to cut areas that don’t affect customers. But customer are the people who bring in the money, and (in the case of government) their customers aren’t the public that they allegedly serve but rather the legislators that fund them, so the way they get more money is by having the herd bellowing and threatening to stampede. It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease.
