Of all the “horrors” the March 1 sequester will inflict on our nation, perhaps the most terrifying are the cuts it will force on the National Drug Intelligence Center, a non-existent government program.
Yeah, let us explain.
Acting in compliance with The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, as Reason’s Mike Riggs notes, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in September 2012 delivered a report to Congress detailing the effects of the automatic spending cuts.
“But there’s a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns against would affect an agency that no longer exists–and didn’t exist when the OMB sent its report to congress,” Riggs notes.
“The first line item on page 121 of the OMB’s September 2012 report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget,” he adds.
Yes, according to the OMB, that’s roughly 8.2 percent of the overall budget cuts. But wait. There’s more!
“[T]he bigger problem is that the National Drug Intelligence Center shuttered its doors on June 15, 2012–three months before the OMB issued its report to Congress,” Riggs notes.
