    Do you have any evidence at all to support this claim?

    For some reason I'm reminded of when the government shut down during the Clinton admin and most people didn't even miss it. Conservatives love to go on about "We need less goevernment, we need less government," now you've got less government and you all think this is horrible.

    Also, it bears reminding that it wouldn't have passed without the support of the House leadership, who are Republicans last I checked.

    IOW, you oppose spending cuts, and support the govt paying for peoples' health care.

    I don't see how you can possibly claim the sequestration was wrong when it is basically the first time in US history when a bill was passed that included reductions in spending that are actually being realized. US history is repleat with bills to raise taxes and reduce spending and the only thing that gets implemented is the tax increases, the spending cuts conveniently get forgotten.

    It's good for Americans to see that they can actually cut spending and that sometimes it hurts - it might give them some respect for the taxpayers' dollars and they might just start to hate wasteful spending in the future.

    Link 1 states that economic growth was negative in the first quarter when Bush entered office. I guess that would make it true.

    Link 2. I agree Bush's spending was a huge problem. 9/11 had a lot to do with why we went to war. I believe it was neccessary. I dont think we will reach agreement on this. Original article rather than stupid blog crap not worth linking to because its partisan drivel:
    White House projects record deficit for 2009 - CNN.com

    Link 3 gvies the original link as a Houston Chronicle article and is a dead link. However, Clinton's reticence for enforcing sanctions and and inability to ensure technology embargoes was fairly well known and could not have helped matters.

    Link 4 Dude. BUSH WASNT IN OFFICE YET! June 23, 2000? Bush was placing blame on the guy in office at the time, why the hell would Bush take blame when he wasnt President yet. Nice self own there.

    So THIS is what a national single-payer healthcare system would look like! All that's missing is the government panel that decides who gets to go to the doctor, or which medicines are cost-effective.

    a 2% reduction in medicare, yet the clinic mentioned in the op is cutting 1/3 of their medicare patients.

    profits over patients.
