Congress simply mandated that cuts be made - the Admin is deciding WHAT gets cut. It's their fault.

But truth to tell, this sequester represents $85 billion out of 4.7 trillion.

If we can't manage that (and we can) then this country's going to hell in a handbasket and nothing is going to stop it.

In order to get back to break-even, we'd have to have like a 2 trillion dollar budget and about 80 years of it. Other than that, we're sunk.

To be honest, it is not being cut from 4.7 trillion, but a much smaller figure, as certain things (SS, Medicare, interest on the debt) are not being cut. It is disproportionally hitting Defense, for example.
