Two years ago, a humor website called The Washington Fancy presented the headline â€œObama Cancels July 4th Because of Budget Cuts.â€ The fake article in the middle of debt-ceiling battles insisted â€œPresident Obama sees the cancellation of the holiday as due punishment for Congressâ€™s recent behavior.â€
It continued: â€œCanceling the July 4th holiday will save states and cities billions of dollars in money that would have normally been spent on Chinese fireworks and large brass bands.â€
Itâ€™s not funny anymore. Now, with what AP falsely calls the â€œcongressionally mandatedâ€ sequester cuts, military bases have done just that. They have cancelled Fourth of July events.
