Morning Joe Hits Obama Admin. for Misleading Sequester Scares


Joe Scarborough and the Morning Joe panel criticized the Obama administration for drumming up a “doomsday chorus” leading up to the sequester. After showing a compilation of the president and members of his cabinet warning of the sequester’s impact, Scarborough pointed out misleading examples they gave, including the claims that there will be widespread teacher layoffs and pay cuts for Capitol Hill janitors and security guards, each of which gained “Four Pinocchios” from the Washington Post’s fact-checkers.
