The GOP will get all the blame for everything when things go downhill…
President Obama has brilliantly set the pieces on the board to box the republicans into this no-win situation… I love it, LOL!

Don't give him so much credit. The GOP painted themselves into their own corner, on their own.

The civilian employees working for DoD were doomed by the last election, not Sequestration. What did they think would happen when Obama said he'd reduce the defense budget?

It's gtood to see youadmit that it is a lla scare game engineered by Obama and Democrats to paint the Republicans as obstructionists..But, it is likely to blow up in his face at some point..How long can he play the "blame" game before Americans reconize it for what it is?

Obama is quoted supporingt sequestration, refusing to dump the automatic cuts. Republicans need to let it go into effect, tghe cuts are no more dangerous than the illusive, or better yet, Non-exsistent Obama Budget.

Allow Americans to see the scare tactics for what they are..Scare tacics..Threatening Teachers,, who are paid by the state, firemen, who are paid by local municipalities, police, who are paid by city, and state governments. We can do without a few FBI agenst, a few government workers from a bloated government workforce.

no, the whole thing was thought up and perpetrated by the tea-bag contingent of the GOP.

How ignorant you are!

You can use juvenile belittling tactics so common from the left..However, it does little to reduce facts. Anybody with a computer, using very little time can do their own research, and then decide who the ignorant one is.

You will find, then, that the whole idea of putting the balanced budget above recovering jobs was a GOP tea-party initiative.

The "Budget Control Act of 2011" or 'sequestration,' was designed to break the log-jamb. Obviously, it is not working, and therefore ought be abandoned, if no agreement is reached.
