Obama urges Congress to ‘do the right thing’ on averting sequester cuts by March 1 deadline

There are 19 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Feb 22, 2013, titled Obama urges Congress to ‘do the right thing’ on averting sequester cuts by March 1 deadline. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

President Barack Obama, intensifying pressure on congressional Republicans, said Friday that lawmakers still have “the opportunity to do the right thing” and avert a series of mandatory budget cuts by March 1.

Despite little sign of a deal emerging with Republicans, Obama said he does not believe it is inevitable that the $85 billion in across-the-board budget cuts will take effect. He said finding a way to avert the cuts should be a “no-brainer” for congressional lawmakers.

How about Øbama urge Congress to do the right thing and tell Harry Reid to vote on either or both of the bills already passed in the House that would avert the reduced amount of increases in spending outlined in the sequester if he's so damned concerned. That won't happen because Øbama isn't serious about this. He just wants to point fingers at Republicans while his party sits on their hands.

The house has sent budget bills to the senate which are sat on by ried and company.....no senate budget in 1030 days!

Harry Reid and the Democratic Party should hang their heads in shame.

Seems the only ones doing anything is the house, and the dems are still doing their Beavis "uh, it's their fault" incantation! LMAO

Absolutely not, and some is due the senate...but, most of the dissatisfaction is with the House republicans, that have chosen to serve corporate masters and petty party politics, over the United States.....
