There is nothing surprising about this. It's all part of the game, doing what has to be done to keep the spending spigot open and the entitlement program dollars flowing. The Congress failed and resorted to a sequester it never intended to honor to get past the debt ceiling and pending default fiasco. The GOP leadership played the game as they were supposed to. Now that the cuts loom, the Democrats wish to demur but Obama also wants spending and taxes. The Democrats get the spending and taxes they want and the Republicans will get some piddly cuts so they won't appear to be complete failures but the big picture is that nothing has changed. The US still has a Congress with no discipline. Congress doesn't have the guts to make the cuts
