It's time for Boehner and McConnell to stop being such wusses. They have to let these cuts go into effect. Otherwise,Øbama WILL NEVER CUT SPENDING. That isn't even what this 'sequester' is, though; it is cutting the rate of growth from an idiotic baseline budget. Baseline budgeting is a big reason for this insane debt and deficit spending.

LET THE SEQUESTER HAPPEN, Boehner and McConnell.

With no budget during four years, Obama uses the media to squeeze more money from the American people because money for Obama is buying votes and votes are liberal political power. Obama is using the crisis to blame the GOP for the fact that he does not have any budget and that he cannot cut even one penny from the planned 3600 billion dollars (equal to 3.6 trillions). Obama who signed the sequester to cut of 20 billion or 0.5% from the Military and 0.5% from other expenses is going out of control with blames on the GOP while he blames them for the destruction of America. During the last four years Obama spent 3600 billion dollars every year compared to 2300 billion dollar revenues from taxes which means 1300 billion dollars annual deficit which is borrowed from foreign countries. The fact that Obama and the liberal Democrat Senators cannot come with any budget while they use the media to go on Jihadist war against the GOP for 1/2 percent cut while calling it 'holocaust of America' proves that America is already over the cliff and its self destruction by the White House is coming soon.
