Any law, constitutional amendment, or policy that is put into place to force people to do their jobs shows that those people aren’t doing their jobs. Sequestration is just such a policy.
Here’s the crux of the biscuit: government spending must be reduced. Any way it is done, people are going to lose their jobs. No one wants to be seen as being for job loss, so no one does anything. Everyone waits for the other party to suggest something so they can say, “See? They want job loss.” Both sides are willing to wait for the other one to suggest something. Meanwhile, main street hurts badly.
This is a symptom of a much larger problem. Our only capability as a country is to STOP VOTING THE BUMS BACK IN.
Just as an aside, I have been watching this site off and on for months now, and I have yet to see anyone say, “President Romney would have done this/ would not have done that.”
If Mr. Romney would have been a better candidate, Mr. Obama would be unemployed at this time. Not everyone who voted for Obama is a welfare cheat. Some of us felt it would be even worse if there was a President Romney.
