Ryan: Sequester will take effect because Obama failed to act



quote:

“Because the Senate has not acted, because the president has not put a proposal yet on the table, that is why I think the sequester will probably occur,” Ryan told “CBS’s This Morning.” “We have acted in the House. The Senate has not, the president has not, and that is why I think it will happen.”

Not that I disagree that the cuts could have negative effects on the economy.

But serious question: why are automatic spending cuts the devil and automatic tax increases OK?

Here's a more serious question: Where are these ""cuts"".

Using leftist's interpretation of the term ""cuts", if we simply froze all spending at current levels -- no increase, no decrease -- it would be considered a $4 Trillion ""cut"". Sequestration is only scored at $1.2 Trillion.

These aren't even "spending cuts". They're simply cuts in the obscene and moronic AUTOMATIC spending rates of growth.

Obama Says Sequester A “Really Bad Idea” Hours After Carney Admitted It Was Obama’s Plan…


quote:

From Obama’s speech last night:

In 2011, Congress passed a law saying that if both parties couldn’t agree on a plan to reach our deficit goal, about a trillion dollars’ worth of budget cuts would automatically go into effect this year. These sudden, harsh, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. They’d devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. They would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. That’s why Democrats, Republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in Washington as “the sequester,” are a really bad idea.

His spokesman earlier in the day:

JAY CARNEY: What I will concede is that we were looking and the Republicans were looking for a trigger around which to build a mechanism to get us out of default possibility and the sequester was one of the idea put forward, yes by the president’s team.

Yet, they will blame the GOP for it happening.

It's a fact that Obama was the one that proposed it

Let the sequester happen, it is the only real way to cut spending. Will people lose jobs, yes, will programs get cut, yes, will our military get cut, yes. Point is if everyone suffers isn't that fair? The U.S. cannot keep spending over 1 trillion from what they take in and expect everything to pan out. Eventually the dollar will collapse and everyone suffers more than what this sequester will cause. You have to let it hit bottom and then come back up. Only way to solve this problem. Much like a drug addict.
