    Default Sequester

    Boehner to Obama: You created spending cut crisis, you fix it | Fox News

    What do you think the answer to the Sequester problem is? Do you think it will be solved? What do you think will be the fall out if nothing happens?

    I remember when Obama was first running for President and he made this statement in a debate with McCain.

    And, in fact, an across-the-board spending freeze is a hatchet, and we do need a scalpel, because there are some programs that don't work at all. There are some programs that are underfunded. And I want to make sure that we are focused on those programs that work.
    The problem is, it is now his second term and he still refuses to use the scalpel, so now it is time to use the hatchet. I say just let the sequester happen. We will survive. If no one wants to make decisions about about what to cut than the hatchet will do the job for them.

    I thought this opinion piece was interesting. As usual sounds like most of the gloom and doom is all hype.

    even with the sequester, we are still poised to spend more this year then ever before. Obama is proving that he is not a good manager again, this is a budget cut where all the mandatory cuts could be made to areas where it would not be nearly as painful
