It's really very sad. You, I mean.<quoted text>
Really Carol? What do you call the sequester? Those are budget cuts! They're across the board and it's affecting everyone. Obama has put out proposals for streamlining the government but he needs a green light from Congress to do so but the various chairmen of committees in the House are guarding their power over the agencies that need streamlining and not giving an inch. And who controls those committees? The GOP.
Obama's proposed budget increased spending in entitlements and nearly cut defense to the bone.
Don't you remember in 2011 he promised to go "line by line" in the budget to "eliminate waste, fraud and abuse" in the system?
That's all he had to do to avoid the sequester. That's all Republicans asked for in return after giving him his tax increase.
