Unidentified Source Claims Government Wants Public To “Feel The Pain” Of Sequester

03.11.13 02:09 PM

Not only did the White House shut down public tours in order to create an extremely public example of the sequestration pain President Barack Obama spent the past several weeks warning about, but it is now revealed that top officials of Federal agencies could be doing their part as well.

With sequestration looming, U.S. Park Services employees began putting together a plan to make cuts while having the smallest negative impact on public services possible, an unnamed U.S. park ranger told Fox News.** But, those plans were overruled by agency supervisors who instead told park staff to cut “interpretation services” such as special events and educational talks and tours provided by park rangers.

According to Fox, the incident was isolated to one region of the U.S. and a Park Service spokesman said he “never heard of guidance given like that.”

The projected cut to the Park Service under sequester is 5 percent over seven months.

“It’s obvious that they want the public to feel the pain in order to push this agenda that Washington wants,” the unidentified ranger told Fox. “A lot of these parks can absorb these cuts without the public’s visit being affected.”
