    Sequestration is not austerity. You are kidding yourself to think that sequestration will reduce the 2013 deficit by more than 5%. We could now eliminate ALL "discretionary" federal spending and still not balance the budget.

    Again, and I've repeated this many times, presidents and our government doesn't control the economy.

    You give me an Obama economist and I will show you someone who doesn't have a clue. I can counter those economists who predicted accurately what actually did happen. When will you hold Obama accountable for results.
    I am not talking about Obama economists, I am talking about the entire field.

    I'd say nice job trying to change the subject, but it really wasn't.

    How do you "counter" someone who was correct? One has to have a high opinion of oneself to believe that when someone gets a thing correct you can top them.

    no, I make you look foolish, you will never get the entire field of economists to agree on anything and for every one that predicted success of the stimulus there were those who predicted failure. Those that predicted failure were right on.

    You want to claim the stimulus was a success? Doesn't appear that results matter therefore you have no problem looking and sounding foolish.

    Sequestration is a 2% decrease in the rate of spending GROWTH

    Sequestration is not a spending cut

    Uh, yes it is. Austerity is cutting back previously planned spending, that is exactly what the sequester is doing in a ham handed mandatory manner.

    You are kidding yourself to think that sequestration will reduce the 2013 deficit by more than 5%.

    We could now eliminate ALL "discretionary" federal spending and still not balance the budget.
    Um, straw..... and you are conflating deficit with budget cuts, you are leaving out revenue.
