Neither the Congress nor the President have anything useful to add to this debate. We've been used!!! We're caught in a congressional tug-o-war over who gets to have their way, over who wins all the power marbles. The president, sitting in the back of the bus, has nothing useful to add to this legislative Game of Thrones. He and family and the congressional critters live high on the hog while failing miserably. We've been played!! The sequester will have little to no negative impact on the big economic picture although some individuals may be forced to adjust. I've been there. We've done this before, the US is still here. The political elites used us as their hostages or pawns to their lies while they suffered not in the least.
