    Let sequestration happen. We have to take the fall and work through the process at some point and time, IMO the sooner the better.

    What person in their right mind would think that “borrowing” (think printing) 46% of the money government spends is OK? That is over $50,000 a second borrowed!

    sequestration: baby step.

    “Sequestration” is needed, because, without being forced, Obama will cut NOTHING except defense.

    Sequestration is a cowardly approach to cutting the budget to try and make it look like Congress has to act rather than them taking responsibility and DOING something. It is idiotic. Most of them could quite easily put an agreement together (except the Tea Party fanatics who think like Rand that entrepreneurs can overcome physics), but are afraid to be held accountable for actually taking action that might contradict their “official” stands in the course of a compromise.
    Politics IS compromise. Not a showdown.

    Problem is, the voting public – which no doubt includes you – interprets “compromise” as “betrayal”.

    The sooner the Republicans blow themselves up the sooner we can piece together a meaningful recovery.

    YES, let the republicans ‘show us’ by holding their breath until they turn blue, or put themselves out of our misery. Isn’t there some space ship that would transport all these bozo’s up into outer space? What a wonderful world it would be without them.

    Where in the Constitution does it say the President is responsible for writing a budget?

    “Politics is compromise, not a showdown”

    That’s very true, but I think you will find that the partisan divide and people digging in their heels extends to democrats as well as republicans. Obama hasn’t led in this regard, he’s just extended numerous programs, taxes and spending initiated by Bush. Bush almost doubled defense and homeland defense spending during his term and Obama hasn’t done any significant reductions there and he still maintains the Bush tax cuts. I’d love to see true compromise, I’m a big fan of the Simpson – Bowles commission, but politicians of both parties found it politically unsupportable, instead of looking at the benefits to the country.

    I love it. The sequestration was a political ploy used by OBAMA to force congress to reach agreement. Now, I’m no economist but how does cutting 85 billion a year from the defense budget and 85 billion a year from discretionary spending hurt OR help anything? The defense department spends more than that on port-o-lets and there is over 700 billion a year waste and fraud in medicare alone (according to Obama). The last emergency relief bill was 62 billion alone. Aren’t we “bringing home” the troops? Hey instead of buying 7000 assault weapons for “personal protection” in DHS they could just reallocated 7000 M16’s from Iraq and Afghanistan and save a few million there.

    So NOW Obama is saying that to cut so much from the budget would hurt the middle class. hahahahaha as if his wonderful health care bill isn’t doing that already.

    And isn’t HE the one that said he would veto ANY attempt to get out of the sequestration when it was put into law?

    When will all you people get your heads out of the sand?

    How ’bout the gov. pay its employees and military in cash – printing the money avoids the political blackmail and stimulates the economy.

    @Bruce4671

    Bruce, the ENTIRE “Health and Human Services” budget for 2012, which includes Medicare and Medicaid, was about $800 billiion. Neither Obama nor anyone else said that “there is 700 billion a year in waste and fraud”.

    Funny you brought up Rand Paul’s name.


    You and everybody else should view this. About 4 minutes long.

    One must admit they have a problem before they can fix it.

    Sequestration is the REPUBLICANS way to screw everyone, and avoid the blame, just as they’ve always done since “Reaganomics” drove that shaft through the heart of the economy, and “budgets”.
