    Congress offered to allow the Admin more flexibility in where to cut.
    O refused.

    The GOP wants to allow “flexibility” where they choose to be flexible. If President Obama wanted to reinstate Head Start cuts that isn’t allowed. But since the GOP doesn’t want to have airports affected and they are absolutely hysterical about White House tours, the GOP would be willing to be “flexible” there. In other words, the GOP is willing to have everything go their way (as they usually want – see Mourdock’s quote on compromise).

    As long as the Fed is building new bike trails, parks, creating new six-figure jobs, giving raises, funding obscure research, etc., the administration is merely trifling with FAA cuts. School districts and cities do this every time they are threatened with cuts. Get rid of music or police first to cause panic. Seems to work.

    Skip, of course Obama (and congress) exempt themselves from the penalties of the laws and rules they pass.
    -
    Ramirez uses the “stewardess” likeness to stress “service” that Obama is sabotaging, IMO.
    -
    The FAA has been receiving annual increases in its budget.
    Obama forbade the FAA to “cut” on lower priority services, so the “furloughs” of FAA airport essential tower jobholders are proof that Obama does not care about “duty”; only about his Political Agenda setting up the 2014 election….in which he will falsely blame the GOP for his Democratic dirty tricks.

    Obozo is, as usual, trying to cause the maximum pain to citizens so that he can score political points, and to hell with what Americans need.
    Thus proving once again that for Obozo, it’s politics above all else. Despicable.

    “The FAA has been receiving annual increases in its budget.”

    The following budget numbers for the FAA are courtesy of the United States Department of Transportation:
    •2012 $15.9 billion enacted
    •2013 $15.2 billion requested
    •2014 $15.6 billion requested plus $3 billion for airport improvement and the NextGen air traffic control system.

    It looks like from 2012 to 2013 they had a 4% decrease in their budget.

    2 billion bucks to Egypt,20,000 troops soon to Jordan.Lost count of how much the Syrian rebels are getting.A billion or so to bomb Lybia.Billions spent on vacations.Don’t forget the sequester was Obamas idea,but now some how the low information types think its the republians fault.Still no budget since Bush’s last one.7 trillion in new debt in less then 5 yearsIt was barely 10 trillion when his holiness got in office and it took from 1776 to get there.

    the gop wanted ‘across the board cuts’, that’s what they got.

    @ansonia

    Mourdock said what other Republicans are actually doing. Look at McConnell’s 2010 speech about their #1 priority – “jobs” were forgotten after the election was over.


    President Obama CANNOT cut whatever he wants – you should review the sequester. Cuts are to be done across the board.


    Obama compromised too much on the ACA – e.g. public option should have been included. Glad Baucus is leaving


    Has President Obama proposed reinstating Head Start and programs for the poor without reinstating air traffic controllers? NO, he KNOWS that the GOP do not care about poor people – that is why I used IF. Don’t you understand how discussion works?
