    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....

    Since the centerpiece of it is the right's brainchild, you must be very proud.

    Cut the other sides programs not mine coupled with the politics of hindsight.

    That's my take on this thread.

    Dont you remember last year when they put the sequester in the bill...the super committee was to find places to cut...even amount of Republicans & Democrats on that panel...they couldnt come to a agreement so the sequester went forth...even through the bargaining at the last second failed to reach a deal...so sequester it was. Hell, even the Bald Cajun said the sequester was the best deal democrats could hope for because it cuts defense spending.

    So you are saying it is OK to make a promise and an agreement then not follow through with it?

    Here are 47,300,000 hits on google about conservatives being blamed for the Boston bombing
    https://www.google.com/search?q=bost...hrome&ie=UTF-8

    CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen suggested more than once that a, “right-wing extremist group” could be behind the attacks.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews falsely claimed that, “Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right.”
    “I’ll bet good money it’s a right-wing nutjob. Today is April 15, Boston Harbor was where the original Tea Party took place and the on-going gun-safety legislation makes it the mostly likely culprit,” commenter Linda Ginsburg wrote.

    NPR: Conservatives tied to Boston Marathon bombing because of Hitler's birthday
    Thats just a few of the quotes from the pundits blaming conservatives for the Boston bombings.

    I am not. I was just pointing out that this Administration is cutting important things while not cutting out frivolous expenses. If they are going to rob the citizenry of its wealth at least dont waste it on crap while cutting the programs that actually might help out and protect the citizenry.

    Protect the citizenry through national defense or have a Motown party at the WH on the tax payers dime....which one to cut out....WOW thats a tough decision.

    Personally I wish the Fed would actually follow the Constitution & what it says its powers are rather than assuming powers they were not given.

    I meant it's false to accuse any rational person, regardless of their political leanings of this. The left blames the right, and the right blames the left. To believe one or the other is silly.

    Dont you remember last year when they put the sequester in the bill...the super committee was to find places to cut...even amount of Republicans & Democrats on that panel...they couldnt come to a agreement so the sequester went forth...even through the bargaining at the last second failed to reach a deal...so sequester it was. Hell, even the Bald Cajun said the sequester was the best deal democrats could hope for because it cuts defense spending.
    That's not really what I meant. What I meant is that there was Congress people who WANTED sequester, not just resigned to it.

    So you are saying it is OK to make a promise and an agreement then not follow through with it?
    The promise was made between both Democrats and Republicans. The sequester was their punishment for not being able to come to an agreement. So, in this case, I obviously do not approve.

    But, again, what I was talking about was how some of the Republicans (again, mostly Tea Party) were wanting the sequester. They did not want Congress to keep its promise to itself, it wanted the sequester.


    Here are 47,300,000 hits on google about conservatives being blamed for the Boston bombing

    Actually, after looking at some of the links, I didn't see people blaming conservatives nearly as much as I saw conservatives acting like they are the victim of liberal persecution. Considering how often conservative media tries to blame the rest of media for being persecuted, I'm not really moved on this point.

    Thats just a few of the quotes from the pundits blaming conservatives for the Boston bombings.
    I just watched the Peter Bergen segment and he did not blame right-wing extremists. I watched the Chris Matthews part, and he actually corrected himself so as to NOT accuse them of being right wing, just terrorists. I don't know who Linda Ginsburg is and every link I've seen to the quote she supposedly made comes back to Glenn Beck's website and a webpage which does not exist. David Axelrod did not say anything about conservatives, just that it was tax day. And NPR didn't say anything, one person said something and even that was a reasonable conclusion which did not state it was the work of a right wing person.

    So from all the things you posted, only one (the NPR) could I see any legitimate link between someone in the media accusing this of being the work of a right wing extremist.

    I'm just basing it on the fact that it's based on Romneycare, and it wasn't that long ago that Newt Gingrich thought the personal mandate was the way to go.

    Newt Gingrich Supported an Individual Mandate as Recently as May 2009 - Conor Friedersdorf - The Atlantic

    We might have gotten that anyway, McCain supported it.

    She said she first heard the concept of the "individual mandate" in a Miami speech in the early 1990s by Sen. John McCain, a conservative Republican from Arizona, to counter the "Hillarycare" the Clintons were proposing.
