    Which is false. Just as it is false when the conservatives are blaming the liberals for it.

    ...just like every other horrific event of the last 10 years they try to blame conservatives for it
    And the conservatives blame the liberals. It's just the way things go.

    ....the only difference now is they have the sequester to throw at Conservatives too..Liberals are just as guilty for the sequester as the Conservatives are but according to them...not their voting record, they had nothing to do with it.
    I don't recall many Democrats out there pushing for the sequester to happen. From what I can remember, it was mostly Republicans (and more specifically, Tea Party nuts) who were happy about the sequester happening.

    There's a big difference between agreeing to agree a year and a half down the road and actively campaigning to force something through.

    Each and every one of them need to stop playing the game of political finger pointing and political posturing for face time in the news. They seem like they are more happy with their celebrity status rather than doing their jobs they were elected to do.
    100% agree.

    Who are the leading people who are saying this?

    Is it the Feds job to protect the state or is it the state's job to protect the state? Why are you wanting to rely on Federal money to protect yourself?

    So then Obama isn't cutting anything since congress is the one that made the cuts. Thank you for clarifying Obama didn't have anything to do with this.

    So you are saying that the fault of this decreased funding and therefore possibly the bombing is the fault of Congress, and like you said, President Obama was against these cuts.

    ADDED: I didn't see TheNextEra's posting, but I think this needs to be reiterated.

    So you're blaming Congress for this. Who in Congress is generally speaking out about the necessity of budget cuts?
    If you would simply learn to read, you would be clear on all of this

    Obama excess spending on ACA and other things for the lazy ****s of America left Congress with little choice. Obama is a high maintenance whore.

    You're trying really hard to turn this into Obama's fault. Either he made the cuts or he didn't.

    It's interesting how the sequester must have passed the House without a single Republican vote. And how Obama and the Senate managed to cut spending without actually doing so. It's almost as if good things soley reside on one side....

    You could go so many ways with this:

    1) As the others are asking

    2) Is 10 million dollars in removal devastating?

    3) Does 10 million dollars substantially improve the prevention?

    4) Don't you have to cut somewhere?
