Speaker Boehner's Powerpoint slides from July 2011, which he used to sell the idea of using sequestration as means of holding the Obama administration accountable. I'm guessing the Obama administration regrets making this deal. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has been unusually silent. As concerned about jobs as she always says she is, you would think she would have something to say about the loss of 700,000 of them on the horizon.
If you're concerned about government waste, consider the time spent by all federal agencies figuring out where they will absorb the cuts when sequestration takes effect. Using the home-balancing-the-budget analogy Congress is so fond of, just as erroneous then as it is now, sequestration is like telling you to decide which children you won't feed.
We live in interesting times. Fortunately, we have plenty of armed people ready to protect us from a tyrannical government and stand up for the right to bear arms by fighting against background checks and gun registration in spite of so many Americans being killed by firearms every year, and whose solution is having more guns. It doesn't appear that Congress will do anything about that either. Perhaps it's more palatable to think of it not as killing, but as a way to thin out our numbers--for our own good.
