    Funny how when a Company layoff workers they scream that is not right that company can make those cuts elsewhere why don't the heads cut their own salary to keep those workers but when Obama does it you hear nothing but crickets

    Re: Whose fault is sequestration?

    It was voted on and passed by Congress. What I blame Obama for is the current demagoguing of the issue, and threatening to furlough govt employees and curtail services simply because the increase to the budget will be less than it would be without the sequestration. Obama got his tax increases when the Bush tax cuts expires.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Appreciate it
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    And unrestricted raising of the debt ceiling and unlimited debt spending is good how?
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Consider the source.

    Disneydude saw "whose fault", "democrat", and "republican". That's all he needed to see.

    You can't choose both! It's all about the blame, my left-wing friend.

    This mindless blame game get old real fast.

    It isn't about whose fault it is because every single one of them had their hands in the cookie jar.

    The issue is why is this being promoted with fear mongering?

    Why is it so horrible to not spend as much money as we were going to?

    Should we have a 800 Billion annual budget for the Pentagon?

    Should The Federal Reserve be able to print money at will?

    What are we going to do to actually tackle this 16 Trillion deficit in a reasonable amount of time...not within 25-30 years but 5-10 years?
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
