  • Not after 2 days. These cutbacks were in the works for a long while before they happened. They didn't JUST decide to do them.

  • i don't think it'd be 'are' new president's fault...any cutbacks that are coming now are results from the economy..

  • Jeez so quick to blame Obama....sad. No our cutbacks have been in the works for months. Our school system just took away 30 million for construction and improvement. I love this part "our children will just have to deal with non air conditioned and leaky rooms." Um yea...the school can face closure by the health department for that. I know things have to be cut somewhere. ALthough they were happy to build that 15 million dollar building for the school board (it could have waited...), and give them all raises this year....its just the students and teachers that have to foot the bill.

  • They're eliminating the DMV here and taking it to a larger town 80 miles away. This is gonna be a mess. People who learn to drive in a little town of 35,000 are gonna be taking the driver's test in a city of over 75,000. People are gonna drive an hour one way, stand in line and then find out they need 1 paper they left at home and have to reschedule... Gonna be some major anger issues going on! This isn't Obamas fault, they announced it the day before the inauguration, and anyway, our town is so small he doesn't know it exists.

  • He froze salaries of some of the aides I believe, people who work IN the White House. That's probably the money you heard was frozen spending wise. He started at the top with his ideas.
