Change: White House Urges Flexibility on Sequester Reductions

I think that the most important quote out of what Guy posted here is this: "....implementing the sharp budget cuts that went into effect March 1." This is where media bias is so quiet it's nearly undetectable. An honest portrayal would be that the increase in spending will be less than originally planned for; however, this does not parrot the Obama/Democrat line. I'm starting to think that anyone who claims that there are at least some objective reporters in the MSM needs to re-think that. The MSM is nothing more than the mouthpiece for Obama and the Democrat party. The Repubs and conservatives MUST find a way to combat this and not merely whine about it as has been the case the last 5 years.

Exactly. If you're suddenly cutting jobs because your budget didn't increase quite as much as you thought it would (but, still increased), you're, er, doing it wrong.

In a reversal, the Obama administration is counseling federal agencies to fund ways to soften the blow of the so-called sequester "cuts."  The White House had previously worked assiduously to make the small spending reductions as feel as painful as possible, in service of their political narrative:
 

The White House budget office on Thursday urged federal agencies to be aware of ways they may be able to shield their long-term projects while implementing the sharp budget cuts that went into effect March 1. Agencies should avoid cuts that would harm...
