GOP Congressman Exposes Another Obama Lie

Obama claimed that the sequester would leave children unvaccinated. But Obama himself wanted to cut the program even more and claimed that his cuts would cause no harm.
[C]ommittee staff had looked into President Obama’s plans for the 317 program long before the sequester ever took effect.  And what they discovered was that the president, in his 2013 budget, had proposed to cut $58 million from the program.  The administration claimed that the money could be saved through greater efficiencies and would not involve any reductions in vaccinations.  (The proposed cuts never took place.)  What stunned Rep. Harris and others was that after claiming in the 2013 budget last year that $58 million could be cut without harming vaccinations, the CDC this year claimed that sequestration cuts to the same program, estimated at $30 million, would have devastating effects.
