Obama has Boehner crying his eyes out. Rove a laughing stock on both sides of the of the political spectrum, John McCain, stamping his foot and whining because no one agrees with him. In short? Republicans are a mess, with no end in sight but a bigger mess. I love it.
That is the problem, nothing much is to happen. The sequester should have been bigger and deeper. Liberals are not necessarily for big government or for big spending. There is a lot of room to trim in the Federal budget starting with the defense budget, the budget for spy agencies, insurance for people choosing to build houses in flood zones, DEA, and so on. Instead of 1.2 trillion over 10 years, the sequester should aim for at least 5 - 6 trillion over 10 years in more targeted cuts to programs that we do not need.
