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.

The train that is derailed as Munster like to say is that foolish funding of High Speed Rail and the hole it digs for any local jurisdiction that accepts the bait of “free seed money” for high speed rail. Like old Teddy Strickland and his high speed, 55 mile per hour, 6 hour trip from Cleveland to Cincinnati. That certainly would take your breath away, wouldn’t it?

The FAA fiasco proved one thing: if you really start to look at what agencies get and how they spend that money, you can see why BO tried to keep this from happening. His plan to raise taxes and keep funding the beast of Big Gov’t steals form the American taxpayer. Once you start looking at how the money is really being spent, the lid is off BO’s can of worms.

Some of his own democrats are seeing that they are riding on the train wreck about to happen and are thinking about getting off the train. They are just setting idle for now!! Mid term 2014 elections are gonna do them all in !!

Obama finally submitted a disappointing failure of a budget proposal. No I haven't done anything, just paid my share of taxes for your losers to squander. When someone finally gets elected that will take advantage of the vast oppurtunities that have arose in this country in the last few years, your bunch of blind faith followers will see what good management is all about !!!That will be a welcome change from the "rights stealers" that we have now.

Munster : so when the lefties take over in the mid-term, and raise taxes again, what would be step 2 of their plan?

And, industries are making full time workers, part time workers so they wont have to supply the with healthcare, by cutting their hours. Yes Moderation, I love learning that a BACK door, underhanded plan that was threatened to the US public in the Town Hall meetings is as BIG a failure as WE tried to tell your HERO's that it was gonna be and they lied and cheated to get it enacted !! I hope you enjoy your "free' healthcare while it lasts!!!

All they had to do was move some money around but BO would not let them. BO wanted maximum inconvenience to the public. Congress had to make them do it.

If the FAA was run better, it would not have taken an act of Congress to get it managed better. Every agency needs cleaned up.

From the Boston Herald: The administration insisted that the $85 billion in sequester cuts has to be proportional. So no distinction was made at the FAA between furloughing PR people, speechwriters, historians and librarians ... and air traffic controllers. ... Now normally we're not crazy about the Congress micromanaging every line item of federal spending, but really someone has to play the grown-up here, and it certainly isn't going to be the White House."

Oh yeah, since you mentioned the Affordable Care Act. It has run into some hitches too. Like not enough money to get it started. There are many issues coming up with it that were promised by Pelosi, Reid and Obama to be dealt with that werent.

Congress owns the sequester, and they will be making more changes.

Beright is right. Obama owns the sequester.

Despite what he has since tried to claim, Obama owns the sequester — his administration proposed the idea. In October, the Washington Post’s fact-check columnist derided “Obama’s fanciful claim that Congress ‘ proposed’ the sequester.” The paper gave the statement its dreaded Four Pinocchio rating for untruthfulness.

beright- could it be that you didn't log off and someone else has posted when you were absent ?

100% of the Democrats voted for Obamacare before reading the bill. Now that they have read it, 100%, including Reid and Pelosi, want out.
