    Republicans are cheering the action,but blaming Obama. Nothing changes.

    I love today’s strip here. Cut baby cut. Ahab it was Obama’s idea and the Republicans have never washed their hands of the sequester. Give me one post that says they do. Congress voted on it, both in the House & the Senate then Obama signed off on the sequester.

    Jeez, DrCanuck, you really need to research who initiated the sequester and who voted for it and against it.

    “But now, of course, they’re against it”


    It’s perfectly logical. You’re obviously missing the data flow here.


    If the sequester was seen as successful, then they were for it, (or else) they were against it. Normal political logic to me…

    I found a CBS affiliate that has a timeline: WOTC’s explanation of Sequester

    There are just a few richest people who control almost all of the money. These people are sociopaths who have no sense of right and wrong or even human decency.

    Republicans wrote it (back in ’85 actually) and have been for it, before against it, because Obama said, “Okay, you wanted it, live with it.”

    I suspect that deep down both parties are hopeful that the cuts will come. This way someone else has to make the hard choices of which of their programs get hit.

    If you’d care to examine FRED, the federal reserve economic database, you’d discover that Federal spending is flat since Obama took office. That’s total federal expenditures, quarterly annualized.

    “I suspect that deep down both parties are hopeful that the cuts will come. This way someone else has to make the hard choices of which of their programs get hit.”

    Bingo. Nailed it. Any reduction in spending will create job loss. Although there are a lot of politicians willing to allow us to continue to suffer in this economy, no one wants to be thought of as making it worse. So no one will do anything. Easier to blame a false emergency which was created precisely because those whose job it is to fix the problem they themselves caused are too cowardly to face facts.
