    The president said that the sequestration which is about to adversely effect the economy was an idea put forward by Republicans, however we are finding out that this is a complete lie.
    Do you think the president will sluff it off like it was no big deal that he lied to us the way that Hillary did about Benghazi? It's just another disaster brought to you by the Obama administration, "what difference at this point does it make?"

    It was agreed to by both parties, and will be the responsibility of both is it happens.

      And never mind the fact that House Republicans voted twice to replace Obama's sequester. The guy completely went back on his plan and as usual asks everybody to share the blame. Our president leading from the rear as usual.

    Sequestration was forced on the world by the president in 2011.  He said, "This will happen". Now he says this will be horrible. Sequestration is not legal, it by-passes the house and the senate. Legal entities which are to form laws. It forces we the people to accept whatever the President says. An that changes so often I can't keep track.
    If this were a corporation there would be around 540 executives headed for prison.  The Senate hasn't passed a budget in 5 years. Mr. Reid has also impeded bills that would have helped.   Washington is a fortress of rock and granite.  If we shut the entire Federal government save for law enforcement, for a month ,my guess is none of us would miss them a bit.  It might even make our lives better.
    There are states where legislators work part time.  If that is possible for people who are more involved in our daily lives just think of how much better we would all be if we cut the federal government.

      It doesn't matter. The media will do what they do best.

    It is always cliffs, ceilings and looming catastrophes with Barack Obama. It is always government by freakout.

    The point *for both sides* was that it was such a bad default option, it would make them cooperate.

    Oops.

        Both sides did each other in.  If you still think one side "wins" this one, I would suggest that you are part of the problem.

          Amazing how you always characterize it as both or just the GOP.

      More dodge ball. The more the plans fail, the more the planners plan.
