>" Despite this conclusive evidence that Obama himself proposed the sequester, the media sat on its hands as the President falsely excoriated the Republicans for originating and insisting on the sequester. They stood by as the President ludicrously accused the Republicans of deliberately inflicting harm on sick children so that their filthy rich supporters could have their corporate jets.

White House Admits (Third Time) President Obama Fibbed On Sequester - Forbes
>" The president and Lew had this wrong.
