So the Obama Administration is announcing a spending freeze. What a scam this is. It seems the Obama Administration and the Democrats are hoping people will not remember what they did last month when the raised the budgets of a number of Federal Government departments by 10%! I guess they are hoping that we voters were not paying attention in December because of the upcoming Christmas holiday. Here are is the money quote from December 2009:
It happened quietly at the White House this week - almost like they didn't want us to notice:
President Obama signed a $1.1 trillion spending bill which increases budgets in many federal agencies by about 10-percent.
The bill includes almost $450 billion for the operating budgets of different departments. Among those seeing increases: The FBI, the Veterans Health Administration and the National Institutes of Health.

Democrats say this spending is critical in order to help the economy out of the recession. But Republicans are slamming what they call out-of-control
spending - and criticizing about $4 billion going to more than 5,000 earmarks requested by individual lawmakers.

Doesn't exactly sound like the change President Obama promised, does it

The budget freeze announcement sounds like the stores that raise prices the month before so they can claim that they are having a sale when they bring them back down the following month. It really is just a scam!
