"That’s what this choice means. Are Republicans in Congress really willing to let these cuts fall on our kids’ schools and mental health care just to protect tax loopholes for corporate jet owners? Are they really willing to slash military health care and the border patrol just because they refuse to eliminate tax breaks for big oil companies?
Republicans must be getting a lot of $$$ from big oil and their buddies if they're willing to inflict more harm on the economy overall, to save tax subsidies for their big oil buddies.
raw truth is our President is a damn liar - his sky is falling speaches are a bunch of bull szhit
the sequestration cuts are near equal to the haircut all working Americans took when the payroll tax was reinstated to its normal level [they should never have used social security money to facilitate other govt spending in the first place]
every unit of the US govt can easly absorbe the minimal cut they will see - they just don't want to do it.
what we need is a leader --- the people of the US elected the SOS and they are getting the SOS
Remember that low life, white trash, ignorant #$%$ congressman that called President Obama a liar during the middle of President Obama's FIRST State of the Union speech?
Not much has change in the pedigree of those who have the nerve of calling our president a liar. The Republicans will soon be taken over by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. They will bring integrity back to the ailing republican trash. Now F'OFF.
Not worth joining the useless banter of Washington DC. Neither Congress nor the President are doing the job.
Because they are not, we need to be honest in our evaluation, the Republican House had to pass the bill for the President to sign. So both did the sequestration.
You are absolutely correct. Obama even threatened to veto any republican effort to stop the sequestration. Now he wants to blame the republicans! Obama needs to quit with the sky is falling mentality and get off his dead horse and LEAD. This blame, blame, blame is getting old. One thing's for certain and it's a good thing. This administration is now officially LAME DUCK! Amen!
