    Your guys can't even be held to their own word. Sorry.
    Flip, flop; flip, flop. Which will it be this time for you? Flip or flop?

    The sequester was/is the "law of the land". Democrats, the GOP and the president agreed to it and it was made law. Now the democrats are trying to change the "law of the land". That's fine, that's part of the process just like it is for Obamadon'tcare.

    Where is your rant at the Democrats not being "held to their own word" if your silly standard is no law can be changed? We won't be seeing that of course as you have no standards except to make any excuse for the democrats.

    They may be ready to come to an agreement!

    Here's a video of the latest politician rationally and logically explaining just what he sees must be done. I'm not sure if it's Boehner, or perhaps it's the president, as the picture is a bit unclear, but he obviously has a handle on the core arguments of the issues at hand.

    speech is seen here
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney

    Not quite correct. An amendment to the ACA was passed under reconciliation.

    My standard is that when a negotiation occurs, and the other side agrees to your terms, the negotiation has ended.

    Oh, I see. Then you are completely against the Dems attempts at negotiating higher caps on the sequester spending? It is "law of the land" that the Dems agreed to (actually pushed for) and now they want it changed.

    LOL. It's going to be more flip flop on your part as you have no standard. Keep on with the comedy act though, it's entertaining.
