The sequester is as joke.
A 2.4% cut in 47% of the excess (deficit) spending, and the cries of despair, coming out of the Democrats is great theater.
They complained when someone put a debt clock in DC. Horrors, right their within view of the big spenders, a reminder of how much money they don’t have to spend. It was just a mean and horrible thing to do, so the Dems demanded it be shut off while one of their herd is speaking. See no evil?
What this country needs is someone to cut spending in Washington DC by at least 50%, not 2%, and put the nations moochers back on their own.
A balanced budget with no borrowing, and at least 4% to pay down the debt. That is what anyone that was forced to face reality would do.
