    They're real, just not complete. By all indications though, we will in fact spend less than the previous fiscal year in nominal and real terms.

    Our borrowing ratio was sitting at roughly 30 cents on the dollar last year, and if the latest CBO projections hold true that ratio will fall to less than 20 cents on the dollar this fiscal year. The deficit to GDP ratio has also been slashed nearly in half over the last four quarters compared to the previous four (8 to 4.4 percent).

    Yes.Most 2nd amendment supporters oppose universal background checks because it will be used to pave a way for registrations. Those who are 2nd amendment supporters oppose registration of firearms.Most 2nd amendment supporters generally vote for conservative republicans and in some cases conservative democrats. Therefore the people 2nd amendment supporters elect will oppose any of Obama's anti-2nd amendment ideas.

    Over 90% of people polled want background checks ... Are you telling me that the majority of people in the districts of Congressmen/women who oppose it also oppose it? Really? BTW, these clowns don't represent their constituents first and foremost ... they represent the Johns that pay them to turn tricks for them ...

    The only 90% who wanted it are not in pro-2nd amendment states.

    Correct.

    Really?
    If 90% of their constituents emailed,faxed,wrote or called their elected representatives agreeing with Obama on the UBC then they would have voted UBC. 2nd amendment supporters are very vocal and do contact their elected officials.They know what happens when you don't stand up to anti-2nd amendment scum.

    Save your thems thar e-vile corporations have bought our politicians nonsense for the conspiracy forum section.

    "Support for universal background checks went across party lines: 89 percent of Republicans and 93 percent of Democrats and independents were in favor, as well as 93 percent of gun households and 85 percent of those living in a household with a member of the National Rifle Association."

    Sorry Jimmy, but you really have no idea what you're talking about on this ... and your last line is nothing short of laughable, but I'll refrain from laughing just to be polite ...

    Again a liberal poll where anyone on the other end of the phone line can claim anything they want doesn't mean squat.What matters is the fact 2nd amendment supporters were the majority of people who contacted their elected officials in pro-2nd amendment states telling them not to support UBC. If there really was this huge support for universal background checks then it would have already been signed into law right now.

    Re: Is this a good explanation for sequestration?

    Here's a better examplanation of Sequestration.

    A wife and husband go over their family finances because they're having issues paying the bills.

    The Husband suggests the wife keeps spending too much on clothes and shoes while the Wife keeps suggesting the husband spends too much on tools and yard work.

    They both agree that they'll talk about it again next month, with each of them coming up with a plan on how to cut their monthly expenses so they can cover all their debts.

    They come back and the Husband's plan mostly just cuts the spending on Clothes and shoes, while the Wife's comes back with the idea that the Husband should just get a second job at night and cut out some of his tools since he won't need them anymore. Neither plan is acceptable to the other and they keep arguing.

    Finally, bills start coming in and because they can't agree they end up spending less money across the board...so less on clothes and shoes, less on tools and yard equipment, but also less on groceries, less on their outings together for dates, less on their cable package, etc.

    So because neither of them could come to a conclussion that the other one could reasonably get behind their entire financial life was thrown into turmoil because the bills don't stop coming and that money had to come from somewhere.
