Sorry wrongtime, you got it wrong.

The non-partisan budget experts at the CBO think they have a very good idea of how the sequester is going to work, and so did John Boehner himself just last month when he wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal saying the sequester “threatens U.S. national security, thousands of jobs and more.” When “Meet the Press” host David Gregory mentioned the op-ed, Boehner dodged, saying only that he’s “concerned about its impact on our economy” before changing the subject.

Meanwhile, Boehner said that Obama hadn’t put forward a plan to undo sequestration.

“Mr. Speaker, that’s just not true,” Gregory replied sharply. “They’ve made it very clear, as the president just did, that he has a plan that he’s put forward that involves entitlement cuts, that involves spending cuts. That you’ve made a choice, as have Republicans, to leave tax loopholes in place and you’d rather have those and live with all these arbitrary cuts.”
