The Republicans nees to own the sequestration. It won't hurt anything and it just may help. Any spending cuts will.
But Barry wanted it. He wanted it because it was minuscule and he knows it won't hurt the economy. He wants to scare the shit out of everyone now, nothing will happen, and then when it's budget discussing time again he just goes back on the campaign trail telling all the dopes out there that he gave the Republicans their cuts last time and now they need to raise taxes. Only problem is, that's just going to lead to higher taxes, more spending and we will be nowhere and come 2016 this will all be the Republicans fault thanks to the Barry media telling us that it is. There, I've just given you the next three years, take a break.
