I agree with Wake Up, the sequester belongs to Obama. He invented it with his cronies, marketed it to Congress, and patted himself on the back when they accepted his plan. And he is the one who has decided where the cuts will come from- schools, police, airports, the military, national security, food inspectors,and other vital services. Has Michelle cut any of her 20+ staff members? Biden is on his 3rd vacation of 2013. The Obama girls just went on a luxury trip for spring break at taxpayer expense, and he is out playing another round of golf. We are funding research on snail sex and why coffee spills when you walk with it. I don't hear about any of those things being reduced or eliminated.
Until Obama and his buddies stop spending money like there is no tomorrow on frivolity and personal entertainment, I'll continue to support the sequester.?
Spot on analysis, Twinmom. This administration needs to get serious about cutting the fat in the federal budget, starting with the White House staff and the "vacation" budget.

SOOOOO MUCH Ignorance and pretty clear prejudice here... The Republicans hold the Country hostage and I guess that facts are the first casualty in this war of words... Oh of course Obama is to blame, and of course Socialism is to blame... Idiots throwing words around without any connection to reality..

I see the blamers are out again, laying all problems from around the world at OUR AMERICAN PRESIDENT'S feet. A little study of the "Budget Crises of August 2011", will bring you up to date of real history, not the FOX variety.
(POP QUIZ: What Congress and during what year, challenged what President to multiple Budget Crises? ANSWER ; there has never been this type of circus put on by any political party in the history of this Country. It is a new concept instituted by the T-Babies)
The uninformed blabber from those above, from "Obama's Sequester", to there was no President named "W" who started 2 wars and gave the millionaires a tax break at the same time and brought this Country to the brink unlike anything since the "Great Depression (no one denied bake sales to buy body armor for service personnel going to war).
Oh, and there is the ever present "Obama is a Communist". A statement that is equal to the come back during an argument between two children; "oh yea".
But that's ok. As some bragged after the 2010 elections, "Elections have consequences". Might I suggest that you contact your Congressman and push Emperor Baaanor to say; "Yes, I will accept the President's offer". That is when the economy will change for the better.
more to come
"MARINE" I Doubt it or maybe the pencil pushing "i don't want to be in harm way" kind of guy! Last time I checked not all of us needed or expected body armor to do what we volunteered to do! We understand what it means to be in harms way and do not whine and cry like you are doing! STOP using the very honorable MARINE logo and hiding behind your desk! look up at that flag of freedom you live under and start respecting AMERICA and it's people that keep it above your head!

Only 5,000 or so bake sales to go, and we're good.

Can't fund White House tours but somewhere there was money for the White House Easter egg roll/hunt. And then there is this:

Ummm... how about.... because THE DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED SENATE DIDN'T EVEN VOTE YES OR NO ON ANY BUDGET COMING OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR YEARS. THEY WERE HELD BY THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AND NEVER EVEN GOT TO COMMITTEE. How's that for a nice little fun fact, munchkin?

Surely the liberal Cville pseudo media will give us a good summary as to why the Obama junta decided not to touch over 50 billion dollars in foreign aid.

Way too many special interests and lobby's for any change to happen. Its not a left or right issue, its corruption on both sides.
