Last I checked Republicans hold the house, so Obama should not have been able to sign this into law. The new RNC ad shows Obama vowing to veto the house bills, but where is the video of Boehner excoriating Obama? We've known of this for more than a year and now, at the last minute, were going to play cover our butts. (hey, we passed 2 bills!). Provided that the sequester is as bad as everyone says, (personally I don't think it goes nearly far enough), Boehner's failed leadership is every much to blame ss Obama. He even bragged in his op/ed about helping to form the idiotic super committee that started all of this. And he wants sympathy for passing the cliff bill against his house wishes, resulting in tax increases with no cuts!
