“As it happens, the sequester law is clear in requiring the F.A.A. and most other agencies to cut their programs by an even amount. That law was foisted on the public after Republicans demanded spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling in 2011. Since then, the party has rejected every offer to replace the sequester with a more sensible mix of cuts and revenue increases. Mr. Boehner is so proud of that strategy that he recently congratulated his party for sticking with the sequester and standing up to the president’s demands for tax increases.”-You can pretend this schlock is Obama’s fault, and the RePubs aren’t simply slinging muddy blame, but it ain’t true. And Etch a Sketch aside, I believe the people will vote accordingly NEXT YEAR.
