“Actually, the GOP bill wasn’t designed to avert cuts, it was designed to avert these cuts by giving Obama the power to replace them with equivalent cuts of his choosing. He’s been screaming for weeks that the sequester will chop crucial services by hitting agencies indiscriminately across the board, right? Well, there’s the solution -— let Obama protect the important stuff, like naval deployments, by reinstating the Pentagon’s money and cutting stuff like cowboy poetry festivals instead.”
not a bad move by the GOP- but why didn’t every Republican vote in favor of it???
RE: why didnt every Republican vote in favor of it???
From the experience of seeing waves of illegal immigrants under detention being set free en masse being blamed on the sequester, they know that they cannot trust Obama to do the right thing.
