"Show the Republicans that the vast majority of Americans won't stand for this. Add your name to the call for a balanced approach to the budget:" They are playing the Sequester thing for more than it is worth.
"Organizing For Action" is Obama's propaganda e-mail. The last thing Obama wants is a balanced budget and the Republicans would vote for it in mass if it was presented to them. So here is Obama calling for a "balanced approach to the budget" when he has never had any kind of a budget; not even an unbalanced one.
Obama has offered a balanced approach to the budget, multiple times. It includes closing tax loopholes, rolling back some of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and long-term cuts to entitlement programs. This is what we call the Grand Bargain. It has been offered repeatedly. It was offered in December. It was offered last week.
Every time Republicans (lead by the Tea Brains) have rejected it. They prefer to stand by Grover Norquist and protect their old age benefits.
I don't know what else to tell you. You don't understand what is going on here, and I expect willfully so.
The grand bargain was a wish list submitted by the Democrats with a 'sit down, shut up and agree' mandate attached. Obama wouldn't know a balanced budget, or he$$ even a budget if it smacked him in the face. He know taxes to increase revenue so we can spend it and 'it's my way or no way' in his futile attempts at governing. He doesn't not understand compromise, negotiate, or lead. He knows demand and insult when he doesn't get his way. He is like a spoiled six year old with a good vocabulary.
He doesn’t have the guts to stay in town and hold meetings to resolve the differences to some sort of a win/win deal. He wants it all and he wants it right now. He is a perfect example of today’s instant gratification generation.
I understand very well what is going on here. Nobody, Democrat or Republican, is willing to take the massive step of cutting the National spending 50% and beginning to pay off our national debt. Still they all want to pretend that they are doing so.

PS. The penalty for destroying an egg of the American eagle is $250,000 + time in jail. The government pays for you to destroy the egg of a human being with our tax money.
Obviously you're not paying attention. The jobs are coming (still) the economy is recovering (more like covering its head before it dies completely) and climate is improving because of his efforts and the Arab Spring will yet bring peace and enlightenment to the Middle East. If you don't believe me, just him, or Harry or Nancy or the medial puppet he throws to the wolves on a daily basis.
