Sequestration was OBAMA's idea.
Even more so the 'across the board' cuts and defense cuts...and not a cut of one dime or reform of the Entitlement programs which are the bleeding cause of the problems.
So Obama gets the 'raise taxes' part of the deal back in January....giant 850 billion tax hike.
as part of the deal.....he's got to cut 850 billion in spending or take the sequestration cuts....
and what did he do?
Nothing!.....not a thing...
Just sat on his fat bum and played golf with golf buddies....
Now...he wants no spending cuts and another 850 billion in new taxes.
you don't get to raise taxes almost a trillion dollars twice in 3 months.
