The Sequester is nothing more than small decrease in the rate of increase in federal spending OVER 10 YEARS. President Obama should be the one to choose where the $85 billion in cuts should come from THIS YEAR since THE SEQUESTER was HIS IDEA TO BEGIN WIT

The President needs to lead on this issue he created instead of campaigning against it.

oh no..i hope it was not the blue screen of death. that got me last year. spent a great deal of time downloading and scanning pictures and documents prior to resetting the computer to original settings. then i had the joy of uploading all of the files and photos back on the darn thing. we subscribe to mcafee. in addition i also have "spyware blaster", "spybot search and destroy" and Ccleaner. the aformentioned programs are free downloads. mcafee naturally charges for multi-user protection. but its been worth it. best wishes at ridding your computer of the virus. just remember the half-naked women that pop up are suspect. do not click on them...for obvious reasons! viruses and wife!!!!!

Munster, I am just trying to give BO credit for a great idea. If you want the Republicans to get all the credit, OK with me. If this is the only way we can get the cuts needed, so be it.

Rebublicans and Democrats agreed to the Squester. The Sequester concept originated in the Whitehouse, ie, BO. This was reported by MSNBC. It was also reported by legitimate news sources.

Their suggestions included tax increases as part of a "deal". The Dems came tothe table with trying to "cut a deal" not trying to "cut spending".

Scrappile: I read Factcheck as you did and you are correct about the IRS. Better yet you are more than correct on the IRS. With the Sequester, the IRS will be less likely in a position to enforce the AHCA mandate that everyone has to have health insurance. What a win win. Also, the Democrats answer to Sequester negotiations, at every level of the discussion, was additional tax increases. The purpose of the Sequester, as originally designed by BO, was to force both sides to come up with sensible spending cuts and never have these meat clever cuts take place. Only one side was at the table wanting to talk about reducing spending cuts in some sensible manner while the other was still trying to cut a deal which included raising taxes, again. The Democrats never came to the table with a list of cuts only that did not include tax increases. If we keep going down the road of tax increases, sooner or later it will hit the middle class.

Scrappy , the blind righties are so very intent on blaming the president as the cause of our woesthat they are foretful of the real cause of our economic downfall ! Yes it was W's deregulation of the big finance houses and telling them to churn and burn and that "free enterprise" would fix everything that has led us to ruin !And what doesnt help is the obstructionist republicans hindering Obama's attempts to set things right !

In the 90`s Phil Graham pushed to repeal regulating bank and investing, so they could be combined, it got passed by congress, and bubba signed it into law, well, just like in the 20`s, it worked for a while til banksters figured how to rig the system and boom , depression, back to worst`s decade as raider of the free world, 7 years and another boom, only this time the taxpayers covered the hedge bets and 'Synthetic', yes synthetic cash, makes it easier to disappear, credit default swaps, so your beloved leader Obama, is not the first to step in and hand the nations wealth to cover Wall Street crimes, and wont be the last. So dont be a monkey slingin pooh, and whine cause its on your fingers. Ihear the Heng Seng, has better return for your dollar,how bout you invest in the Chi-Coms, make them the number 1 economy in the world, TeaB**gin Patriot.

Be right do you really like the law enforcement being militarized, I know I feel less secure about that, you want Bradleys patrolling Marietta? How safe would the locals feel then. This sequester is fine if you truly cut across the board, but watching press conferences on C-Span today, I think most cuts are coming from programs that help those with no voice. But if you support 83 billion in subsidies to the nations top 10 banks, while cutting 85 billion in spending, fine, but what if we tried cutting the 85 billion and stopped the subsidies to the banks, and really have a free market system, that does not leave taxpayers holding the debt of banksters, who bet against bad loans and rake in billions while the nations wealth was lost in trillions. Nice work if you can get it. One more tidbit, when you see Obama selling tracts of Wayne national forest to China, Ammo up.

: Will the IRS hire 16,500 new agents to enforce the health care law?

A: No. The law requires the IRS mostly to hand out tax credits, not collect penalties. The claim of 16,500 new agents stems from a partisan analysis based on guesswork and false assumptions, and compounded by outright misrepresentation source Factcheck you know the dotorg/com deal

One would have to be TRYING to screw the economy up for it to go this bad. I guess the fiscal cliff didn't cause the problem thay wanted it to. Probably gonna be less secure with less military and police so we need to go buy more guns and ammo.

Here we go! Big cuts in the rate of increases!

Of course, how do we really know? Harry Reid has not passed a budget in 4 years.

Latest BS: Politico reports that the IRS says that it will have less agents to catch tax cheats if the sequester goes through. Whoops! I guess they forgot about the 16,000 new agents being put on to enforce Obamacare.

They are drowning in their own BS.

-- BO said this with a straight face today: Even though most people agree that I'm being reasonable, that most people agree that I am presenting a fair deal. Translation: tax increase tax increase tax increase

munster, how different of a comment would quench your desire of repeating the same thing over and over again? if agreeing with your thought process is the remedy, then i will accept your remedial redundancy.
