No we just didn't take that fuzzy liberal math class that you seem to lean on for your ignorance.
The mere suggestion that yuu don't get it proves exactly how dumb you are.

Lets review your ignorance.

Say your budget is $100 for the year. A 2%cut means you can only spend $98.00.

But they year is half over. So of the remaining $50 you were budgeted is cut $2, that $2 represents 4% of the remaining money. So the remaining expenditures must be cut by 4%.

Now your household budget is $2000. Say your mortgage & payments such as student loans, credit cards, etc come to $1000.00, That 2% cut in your income means you need to reduce your monthly spending by $40.00.

Since banks & credit card companies demand their full money, that 2% will come from the balance of your budget which now needs to be cut by 4%.

So, now your budget must be cut by 8%.

No fuzzy math. Evidently its just math too difficult for the feeble minded right.

The sequester was a response to the Republicans refusal to raise the debt ceiling.
It is the Republicans who want to shut the government down. The sequester cuts were meant to be so unpalatable to both sides that an agreement could be reached.
All that being said; the only thing that irks you is White House tours? Who is shallow here?
The Republicans refuse to close tax loopholes for the wealthy, therefore the sequester went into effect.
As I have said many times; your party is totally fcked
Aren't you getting tired of playing this game of having these showdowns every two or three months? The Republicans met Obama halfway in January and he wants to raise taxes again.

Tell me one thing Obama has proposed to cut in the budget.

Republicans have all but begged for tax reforms which would automatically close loopholes.

Why is it Democrats refuse to address tax reform, welfare reform, social security reform and medicare reform?

They know as well as republicans reforms have to be done for these programs to survive.

The only explanation is votes are more important.

Would Democrats have offered to provide White House tours to their "constituents/cronies " during the Bush administration if he had closed the doors because he didn't get his way and was having a little temper tantrum?
no. Democrats are smart enough not to make fools of themselves by whining about the POTUS breaking their promise to their constituents/cronies to get them a pass to see the hated one in the WH.

kind of odd that Republicans have a thing about WH tours. i bet if i check they've helped more folks get a pass then they ever did while Bush was in Office.

Answer the question.
Is religious discrimination a 'civil liberty' or a 'social right'? The religious right believes it's both...as long as their religion gets to do the discriminating...

How about owning guns?'Civil Liberty', or 'Social Right'?

And which of the two might exercising one's bodily autonomy be?

Just checking.

Confronted With Facts, O'Reilly Screams "Bullshit"
Guest Accurately Identified Specific Cuts Obama Supports
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly broke down and screamed at his guest Alan Colmes for identifying spending cuts that President Obama has proposed, shouting at Colmes, "That's bullshit!" and repeatedly claiming Obama hasn't proposed specific cuts to replace the across-the-board cuts known as the sequester. But Colmes was correct: Obama has proposed cuts to Medicare and Medicaid as part of his plan to replace the sequester.
During the March 5 broadcast of The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly repeatedly claimed that Obama "refuses" to endorse specific spending cuts, shouting at Colmes, "Give me one damn program he said he'd cut!" even as Colmes highlighted Medicare and Medicaid as two programs Obama has proposed cutting: VIDEO
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/03/05/confr...
I watched that segment.

O'Reilly was not confronted with facts and by no means broke down.

Colmbes was asked if he could cite one example where Obama attempted to cut spending since he has been in office and Colmes just started the typical liberal bullshit spin - NO FACTS.

Colmes could not cite one example, because there is none.

You are simply passing on propoganda from Media Matters, who is a known attack dog spin machine, moron.

You are a liar and an idiot, but everyone here already knows that.

O'Reilly was right on, azzwipe.

The sequester is a "meat cleaver approach" to budget cuts, according to the president, instead of sensible planning and leadership on his part.
Am I correct?
For the umpteenth time., NO.

You are Not correct. You are wrong.

Those meat clever cuts were passed by Congress. They failed to compromise & make a deal.

Canceled White House tours, not projected job losses, cause uproar

The Congressional Budget Office tells lawmakers sequestration would cost the U.S. economy 750,000 jobs, and it doesn't stop Republicans from calling the sequester a "victory." Congress is told the policy will hurt military readiness, and most of the GOP shrugs its shoulders. Republicans are told the sequester will hurt low income families who rely on WIC and Head Start, and GOP officials look the other way.

But told that President Obama is halting White House tours, Republican lawmakers respond, "He did what?"

The congressional GOP may want to revisit its list of priorities.
