    Why does none of the moaning over the sequestrations include a reminder about why it’s happening?

    The Republican lead congress put the Budget Control Act of 2011 in place. The sequestrations will happen because that same congress has been unable, or more likely unwilling, to produce a deficit reduction bill.

    Those same people will, of course, blame the president for their own failure to act. Of course, that’s only valid if Obama doesn’t cave again. And considering he has done so EVERY SINGLE TIME, it’s a pretty safe assumption that he will.

    I’m not sure who came up with the plan to run this black republican as a democrat, but it’s worked out perfectly for the right. The corporate right… not the “common man” right.
