W.H. warns against piecemeal sequester fixes
Politico44 A Living Diary of the Obama Presidency ^ | 4/26/13 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 04/26/2013 2:03:39 PM PDT by ColdOne

President Obama plans to sign legislation eliminating FAA furloughs causing flight delays, but the administration is firmly against piecemeal fixes to other impacts of sequester cuts, press secretary Jay Carney said Friday.

"This is a one-off case, if you will," he said, adding "the sequester itself cannot be finessed. It is having negative consequences around the country."

Carney argued the FAA fix, which was passed by Congress Friday, was doable because the funds were available to head off the need for FAA furloughs.

“Carney argued the FAA fix, which was passed by Congress Friday, was doable because the funds were available to head off the need for FAA furloughs.”

Obama heard from the House & Senate members of both parties.

Except where the Healthcare Act is concerned. That gets 100% funded.

Hey Carney, it was his idea, he signed off on it.
Go piss up a rope.

Obama does not want the Sequester fixed.

He wants to blame it on Republicans though it was his idea.

If it is fixed he cannot lay the blame on anyone.

Let’s be honest, shall we?

Barak Hussein Obama is only capable of one thing.

Screwing up everything that he comes in contact with.

Beyond that, he’s one magnificent waste of dna.

I suspect he DID hear from them! They may also have told him that if the vetoed the bill they had the numbers to override the veto.

Carney is a political douchbag. There have been many WH press people that I could barely stomach to listen to including some Republicans but this guy gets the golden finger.

He is a child, and like a child, when he doesn’t get his way he throws a tantrum. That’s what the FAA thing is about. Same with the White House tours.

Obama threatens Congress not to fight back at his denying basic services because he is throwing a temper tantrum by closing everything in a childish effort to get everyone to want to raise taxes.

When visiting the WH in 2009, Barry Soetoro's former HS basketball coach remarked to him - " You know, you were never as good as you thought you were"

Indeed - and still as true today as it's ever been

Why would reductions in next year's budget cause furlows of current staff?

I mean isn't this a captain obvious question? Why does nobody ask it?

ahahah - the Senate voted 100 to 0 to end the inane sequestration of the FAA - which we all know was nothing more than owebummers poiltical ploy to try and fool people into blaming the GOP for the mess.

It backfired. The FAA sued AND not ONE democrat backed him up.

He’s learning what the term ‘lame duck’ means. I can hear him now: “How DARE they!” - Poor little narcissist.

As I understand, the 5% reduction stays in place but the agency will be allowed to find the savings elsewhere. I agree as long as the House monitors it and makes sure they don’t play the Obama slight of hand game.

The whole government should be allowed to do the same, but with a watchdog in place. Time to play hardball!!

I am all for piecemeal fixes. It’s called setting priorities.
