Actually, Obama promised no tax increases except for the "wealthy", a lie.
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday said he would support a sequestration replacement bill that raises $600 billion in additional revenue if Democrats agree to unspecified entitlement reforms

Graham called sequestration irresponsible and the byproduct of a political system that bucks hard choices. He had tough words for his own party too, accusing House Republicans of using budgetary tricks to make their sequester replacement plan work, and chastising Senate Republicans for not presenting a plan of their own.

"We're the party of fiscal conservatism. Have we put together a plan to cut $20 billion between March and October?" Graham said. "No, the House passed a plan to substitute sequestration. The Senate Republicans have yet to offer a plan.... But the House used savings outside of the 2013 window. If you think this is that easy, I challenge any member of Congress to come up with a proposal to cut $85 billion out of the federal budget between March 1st and Oct. 1st."

To me, this is a bipartisan problem," he said. "I voted against this bill because it would destroy defense. It's a lousy way to cut $1.2 trillion, which is imminently achievable. This is the chance to do the big deal. I'm willing to raise revenue. I'm willing to raise $600 billion in new revenue

Next months spending has not been cut. It's going up $5. It is becoming increasingly apparent that you are clueless.

Boehner recently told reporters, "We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something."

A few days before said,“Just last month, the president got his higher taxes on the wealthy, and he’s already back for more.”

Used to be called "plain talk". Sounds a lot different than double talk.

Guess I've met my quota of posts on here today.

It's all a propaganda lie.
The only thing being discussed is whether to borrow an additional 8.5 trillion dollars, or just an additional 7 trillion dollars, to keep a government that is impossible to pay for even at the current level of government spending.
Let's go over that again....

Democratic Senator Bill Nelson released a specific list of Florida programs that would be impacted by the cuts.
•749 reading teachers could lose their jobs
•2700 children would lose access to Headstart programs to get them ready for school
•16,000 special education students would see fewer services.
•In research dollars, Florida would lose $25.1 million in medical research funding
•$8.3 million that would go to fund research at colleges and universities could be lost.

•Cuts to health programs mean 1016 fewer low income women will receive mammograms and other cancer screenings
•7950 fewer uninsured children will receive vaccinations.
•Even seniors could be affected, with nearly $3 million dollars cut from food progams like meals-on-wheels.

"renigged"? Classic faux pas, or poetic license?
You seem to lack basic comprehension skills regarding the sequestration.
This is entirely in the Republicans lap and everyone knows it; except, perhaps for you.
Reneged. Sorry. Rhymes with rigged. Stupid mistake.

Obama signed the bill that created sequestration. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted last week that “the sequester was one of the ideas put forward, yes, by the president’s team” when asked by a reporter whose idea it was.

Haven't the Cheerleaders shown you this video yet? I've seen it two or three times with Carney standing right there in front of a roomful of reporters saying those exact words.

Why the cuts? They are still getting more money this year than last. Did prices go up that much? They are playing you for a sucker and you are falling for it.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) responded to Boehner's remark. "The Republican leadership says we passed bills last year," Pelosi told reporters. "I remind them, that was a different Congress. That doesn't count in this Congress. The Republican leadership says let the Senate begin. I remind them that the Constitution says that appropriations and revenue bills must begin in the House."
