    The sequester had no provision for changing the allocation of funding. That would require congress to pass a bill actually doing so. Therefore, fault lies with both parties because no budget can be passed without both parties.

    doesn't matter what appropriations are effected in the house...if they get squashed in the senate. partisan hackery will not solve the issue

    Partisans always make me laugh: both parties failed you, and no solution is forth coming because they are more concerned about party politics than your well being.

    Congratulations on being someone's tool, though

Maybe if the folks in DC worked a little harder on behalf of the people who elected them, instead of what we are seeing?...HA!... I might as well make a wish on a star...I'll get the same results.....
    WORK !!

The statistical possibilities of that occuring simply have to be in the stratosphere...talk about mind boggling! : I wonder what Bush thinks when he sees the spin going on....Is he laughing, or does he even much care?

    Then Obama should have vetoed it.

    I could blame obama for this, but i am pretty sure it is the insane mark up on cancer drugs, and I would also guess it is the limitations on capitalistic competition that causes the mark up to be so high. Who are the supposed champions of the free market who enforce a monopoly on drugs again?

    There is a price when a democratic leader tries to give away the farm to stay in office.
