That's my point, when ever there is a s***sandwich served up, obama is absolved of any responsibility. It drives me crazy.... The irony of the sequestor is that it does not affect those on the "dole" Some unemployment benifits will expire but for the most part the social programs continue unabated.
I find it interesting that the Dems are of the belief that once sequestor is "felt"; the American public will "demand" higher taxes. I can't recall a time in recent history where we were all begging for higher taxes...The SSI has already increased costing ~$100-$150 per individual household. I am not in any hurry to lose more. The other reality is the demographic most hit is the government. Ironiclly this is what needed to get hit the most anyway. Sequestor has the oppotunity to be a "re-set"; if managed correctely we can be in a better place in a years time as oppossed to the last 10 years of fiscal failures.
Yesterday congress voted to raise THEIR slush funds.
Sec of State authorized given what was it 250 mil or 500 mil to Egypt.
Again, spend, spend, spend.....
