The sequester came about because the senate could not pass a budget. They were too worried about their political future to do their constitutional duty and pass a budget. So they decided to let a commission to do that. This was a political move that was destined to fail and to the dumborats was a way to blame the Republicans. The sequester was the obummers idea and now he wants to blame the Republicans. Of course the propaganda arm of the dumborats, the media, is supporting that and taking the lie to the people who are to dumb to figure it out.
