There is no question that Congress voted to accept the Sequester. The House is controlled by the Republicans and the Senate is controlled by the Democrats. The President is the Leader of the Democratic Party.
Revenue is NOT the Problem - SPENDING IS THE PROBLEM.
Sequestration was the plan of the Democratic White House Staff to satisfy the Republican controlled House demands for reduction in the debt ceiling.
It would seem obvious that the Senate and House have not agreed to come to terms prior to the Sequester taking effect. The President's Democratic Senate wants increases in Taxes, Spending plus a Higher Debt Ceing and the Republican controlled House does not agree. Should the House of Representatives roll over and allow more increases in Taxes, increases in Spending and a Higher Debt Ceiling. I would pray not. Let's work at lowering spending and not increasing Taxes.
There no need to discuss blame when the Debt Ceiling has doubled to 16.4 Trillion in 4 short years. Why have we not had a accepted budget in 4 years.Wayne Waldack
