    So how come the Republicans didn’t filibuster the sequester?

    Because it is already law. You must be a dem.

    Filibustering is what they’re going to do after March 1st.

    @Guard SGT

    The T publicans helped to vote it into law. One of the few things they’ve actually done. You must be politically ignorant.

    Two reports on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier hid Republican support for the across-the-board automatic spending cuts known as the sequester, reinforcing the right-wing narrative that President Obama is the one responsible for these cuts. In reality, a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate voted for the bill that included the sequester.

    Indeed, Republican leaders at the time touted the law as “a victory” and “a positive step forward” for reducing the deficit.

    In a press release shortly after the Senate passed the Budget Control Act in August 2011, House Speaker John Boehner celebrated the law as “a positive step forward that begins to rein in federal spending” while House Majority Leader Eric Cantor touted the law as a “significant move” and said it “will finally begin to change the way Washington spends taxpayer dollars.”

    House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan declared the law a “victory for those committed to controlling government spending and growing our economy.”

    In total, 174 Republican representatives and 28 Republican senators — a majority of Republicans in both chambers — voted for the Budget Control Act of 2011.

    But in recent weeks, Fox News and other right-wing media outlets have been aggressively pushing myths about the sequester, including that President Obama is single-handedly responsible for the looming spending cuts.

    I have been following this strip for ages and it has aged very well. I just managed to find an old favorite in the ancient archives from December 19, 2002 – I had kept the newsprint copy until it was almost crumbled to dust, at which point i located it in the archive (easier 6 years ago than now) and printed a fresh copy. Now that print too is frayed, so I hunted it down again. Thanks, Gary and Susie, for so many years of pungent, poignant and rib-tickling fun!
    This is the strip I love so much;
