Democrats don’t like sequestration because it will require across the board cuts including their favored social services departments and other that affect domestic quality of life. Republicans don’t like it because it hits the Department of Defense like nothing else can.
With both parties not liking it, voters may scratch their heads and wonder, we may not like it, but this is good medicine.
You see, the first thing that is really broken in America is Congress. Nothing will underscore that as much as sequestration. It demonstrates that Congress is incapable of thinking. Paul Ryan would like to pin the blame on Democrats, and yet the Democrat-controlled Senate is coming up with a budget. They are demonstrating positive action as has the President.
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) predicting Sunday that sequestration “is going to happen,” is like predicting the he and Romney would be in the Presidency.
No, Congressman Ryan, you don’t win by a legislative default.
Republicans don’t really want the sequestration because it will automatically reduce the size of Defense as is appropriate. So, all of the hawks lineup to caw against sequestration.
“Jan. 27, 2013: Ryan, the GOP’s budget guru, says that he thinks “sequester is going to happen.” He blames Democrats, accusing them of opposing GOP efforts to replace the cuts. With the sequestration deadline a little over four weeks away, there appears to be little momentum in Congress or with the White House to stop the cuts.”
