    Speaker Boehner’s stock line is that the House has already acted, but this is a lie. The House acted in the last Congress. The two bills that were passed in the 112 Congress died as soon as the 113th Congress was sworn in.
    If Boehner is serious about avoiding the sequester, why isn’t the House voting on anything? The answer is because Boehner doesn’t have the votes to pass anything. In May, 16 Republicans voted against their own party’s sequester replacement bill.
    By refusing to act Boehner is revealing the hypocrisy behind his tough, but empty words. House Republicans have not only embraced the sequester, they are actively working to make sure that it isn’t avoided.

    With 750,000 jobs at stake – not to mention the furlough of hundreds of thousands of federal employees – this is a total abdication of leadership from Speaker Boehner and his caucus.

    So what? Both parties embraced it and voted on it.

    Congressmen are elected to represent.
    The president is elected to lead.

    Leadership is needed.

    This is the result of 5 years of President Obama leadership.
    It is time for President Obama to lead, way past time.

    This would not have been a problem if the President had a budget.
