    Only Congress can write or adopt legislation. The president can only suggest, approve, or veto. If the Congress let anyone else write legislation, then they aren’t doing their job and so are still responsible for the results.

    NO he has it right although I do think the babe should represent all three branches of government.

    After the Republican House voted for the sequestration, Boehner said “i got 98% of what I wanted” – which includes the sequester. Stop the fiction. The Republican party wanted this.

    No matter how often you repeat that lie, it’s still a lie.

    Did Obama do it alone? Didn’t the Republicans sign on? First they said they didn’t like it and now they embrace it. What do you make of that?
    -
    Cutting in a time of Depression fails every time. It is a time honored failure and the Republicans demand at least a 3/1 cut versus raise taxes. Another failing policy.

    “it was your corrupt tea baggers that whined us into this sequestration.”


    I know you love to hammer on the tea party for everything wrong in the country, but I think you are assigning a lot more power and influence to them than is credible. For example, currently:


    Total in House 435
    Republicans 232 (includes 50 tea party reps.)
    Democrats 200
    Vacancies 3

    The Senate 100
    Democrats 53
    Republicans 45 (includes 4 tea party reps.)
    Independents 2


    Don’t you think the responsibility might be ours that we allow this partisan divide to exist? It’s convenient to blame an individual party or faction but pressure exerted by the electorate before has turned their actions, we just have to exert the pressure.

    Maybe the responsibility is ours, but I’m not allowed to vote for more than one Representative and 2 Senators.

    And the candidates tend to be too extreme on EITHER side.

    But it was OK when Bush flew around in the 747, right?

    Congress punked themselves.

    Anyone claiming Obama wanted the Sequester is making things up. The Sequester was a deal that O made in exchange for the House Republicans increasing the debt ceiling. O wrongly believed that nobody would stand by & allow the Sequester to be implemented.

    Congress is to blame. Last I heard was there popularity is down to 18%. When it is that low you cannot blame one party.
