Bad points?

Its only going to slow growth. Its not going to solve any problems. Only create more. Just more damage and destroy propositions from Obama!

Obama wanted the sequester in 2011. Now its no good. Bad idea? What a great leader. Knows absolutely nothing. Idiots love him though?

Obama created this. Fix it. Quit blaming the right. Left and right are both responsible.

Let it happen. We are talking about what, 80-100 Billion dollars out of our budget? The GAO estimated in 2011 that the federal government wastes as much as 200 Billion through fraud, duplication and stupidity. We will be fine. The defense cuts are not to base military spending. I think Obama is a disaster, but here is one time he is right (even if it is for all the wrong reasons). We spend way too much, time to cut...everywhere

I guess I should be more clear. Obama was right in 2011 when he insisted on sequester. He is wrong now because he is against sequester. With out sequester taking place I will guarantee there will be no cuts in spending at all. And oh by the way, even with the 85,000,000,000 in cuts due to the seaquester, the federal government will spend more in 2013 than they did in 2012.

Was Obama wrong in 2008 when he stated running up the national debt was irresponsible and unpatriotic?

No he was absolutely right. Too bad he doesn't believe his own words. Since then he has added nearly 10,000,000,000,000 dollars to the debt

I think I agree with you to let the sequester happen. We have to start reducing the debt at some point. Now would be a good start. The Republicans should just say.....Mr. President, Thank you for the sequester and signing it. It about time you ARE THINKING about cuts. Then walk away. What would the Dems say to that. The sequester appears to me to not be budget cuts, but rather a spending freeze? At least its a start. Let it happen!

You are stating that Obama 7 trillion to the debt. What did W add? The spending conscious Republican added 6 trillion and he controlled Congress. What did Reagan add? The debt was 700 billion when he took over and was 2.7 trillion or over 6 trillion in today's dollars after he left. You have to look at the greatest President of my generation,Bill Clinton to see the low amount added to the debt. Reagan added more to the debt than all the Presidents before him. Try 400% over what it was when he took office. This occurred in a good economy.

The sequester represents a nickel off every dollar spent by the Federal government. They can't do without that? WTH!

We could always meet at Charley Horse. Oops it's closed and anyway the last Topix party nobody showed up. People were afraid of some posters and I got to admit as has been posted in other topics that Professor may be a taco short of a combination platter.

They closed 3 places. The buildings and their car wash were auctioned off. I guess the family intends to lease back 94 West and keep the Indiana place open.
