You're comparing apples and oranges, but since you brought it up, I opposed that when it was proposed and said so in a Post on this Forum.
So, take you slurs and outrage somewhere else and direct it at somebody else, I don't want to hear it!

Notice that out of the 5 Senators mentioned that have offered to do anything, only 2 are Teapublicans...and the Sequester was the Teapublicans bright idea!
I just now found this. I'll betcha Fox Fake News didn't mention it, either!

I didn't tell you that you couldn't say anything you please. I just told you don't direct it at me because I don't want to hear it!
For your information, all the Federal Agencies were directed to make cuts because of the Bright Idea of the TEApublican Sequester, and that included the FAA.
As far as the "knife" thing goes, if I remember correctly Homeland Security was against it...or maybe it was the Justice Dept., I don't remember because this is old News. But, one of Obama's Agency Heads said it was a bad idea, and spoke out against it. but, it's the FAA Head who makes those decisions and Obama has got his hands full, just trying to save the Country from Economic Collapse, again, thanks to the TEApublicans' stupidity and their "Austerity" Plan and their "Sequester" brainchild!
I agree with you that it's a "Disaster" waiting to happen, and you're laying the groundwork right now , to blame Obama when it does, but I think those days are just about over as far as the American Voter is concerned...IF Obama doesn't cave on Social security and Medicare. If he does, you may see Bernie Sanders running for President next time ...and WINNING!
Whatcha gonna do then, Big Boy?

I guess you are calling Jay Carney a liar now too? Carney admitted in a press conference that the sequester idea came from the White House. Quit trying to lie for the "party".

OT, I am going to disagree with you on this. Most conservatives want spending cuts because the Federal Debt is spiraling out of control. And many conservatives will agree to increased tax revenue if coupled with realistic spending cuts. All we are doing now is increasing taxes and ignoring the spending problem. The ultimate result of this is high unemployment, a stagnate economy and a massive deficit and debt load. Sort of what we have now. If what we have been doing for the past several years isn't working, then one would think to try something else. Conservatives are all for investing in the rebuilding of our economy. But it can't be rebuilt by continuing the same things that haven't worked. I will counter by stating that blaming Bush isn't going to resolve this crisis one bit. I haven't ever heard you say this, but many Liberals do. If everyone would focus on the actual problem and come up with realistic solutions other than simply promoting an ideology, we could all resolve this crisis. Our politicians are doing the exact same thing Topix posters are doing, name calling. In the meantime, the problem persists.
Well "Pete", I understand what you are saying...but that doesn't explain what happened at the meeting I attended which was the subject of my post. The men I discussed the Obama Social Security proposal with were businessmen, friends of mine, and for the most part Republicans. A lot of them are like myself...nearing retirement age and those who aren't have parents who are living on Social Security and their savings (and with interest rates at historic lows, those savings will not last long) and not a one thought cuts in benefits through chained CPI was a good option for S.S. In fact they talked more like a group of Democrats than conservative Republicans.
This is not the first time I have noticed a pattern, since I know most of these men well. If the discussion gets around to cutting food stamps....guess which ones of these folks will argue AGAINST that ? Those who own grocery and convienience stores, because those are a big part of their sales in a poor county like this. If the discussion turns to cutting the HUD rent subsidy for poor folks, guess which of these folks will argue against those ? The ones that own rental houses and apartments which are signed up on the program. Discuss cutting the FmHa housing initiatives through the USDA and the home builders will howl that it would put them out of business.....I guess it is human nature "Pete", but mention raising taxes to pay for the programs that these men do not want cut...and that darn government is too big, needs to be cut to the bone, just as long as those cuts affect someone else !
I am sure you watched Republicans in congress fight tooth and nail, trying to hold the low tax rate for high earners, but when the time came for the Payroll Tax Cut to expire....they let it die with hardly a word, and Grover Norquist didn't threaten anyone with retribution.

OT has more intelligence , knowledge, common sense, and experience in his little finger than you have on your entire brain.
I've known him...on Topix...for a very long time and I was impressed with him from the very beginning , and told him so, more than once.
BTW, he used to be a Republican. As he says, he didn't leave the Republican Party...the Republican Party left him, when it went too far to the, "Radical Far-Right".
I respect his Opinions tremendously and his way of expressing them, even though we have disagreed on a few (very few) issues. He is the only Person on this Forum that I defer to on every Issue that we may differ on, because I'm smart enough to recognize a Person with Superior Wisdom, when I run across One, which doesn't happen often, but it does happen...and it happened on this Forum when I read OT's first Post, a long time ago.
I only wish this Country had a few Million more just like him!
Good morning my friend, and thank you.

Good Morning OT.
These are all very good points that you have brought up.
I might add that the big government that I see right now "S.S." is really running like a well oiled machine.
AARP is firmly against a chained CPI, and I believe our President Obama has it on the table.......but I believe it's only a bargaining chip, that he will not have to use, because it will cost the Republicans far too much, and he knows it.
