American political activist Carla Howell said on Monday that the budget cuts, known as the sequester, is the latest manipulation by both parties.
“When both Democrats and Republicans so-called come together, what we get is more tax increases and more government spending increases and that’s exactly what we are getting,” she told Press TV’s U.S. Desk.
“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,” said Howell, who is also the Executive Director for the Libertarian National Committee.
is the latest manipulation by both Democrats and Republicans to avoid government
spending and to raise government spending. They’re using this drama to try to
scare Americans into believing that spending cuts are bad and the government
spending and tax increases are necessary and justifiable, the exact opposite of
the truth,” she explained.
President Obama is accused of flying around the country berating Republicans instead of digging into the hard work of bringing both sides together to avoid the so-called sequester.
