So how many letters have you written to the Obama Administration and Congress protesting this?
Sequestration began in the Obama White House (OMB Director Jack Lew). Ryan, Boehner, Cantor, Pelosi, Hoyer, all of them bought off on it. Boehner said he got "98% of what I wanted" with the Faustian bargain.
It is the Republican leadership now thinks Sequestration is a "victory." To the US military it isn't. It is a betrayal. Irony of ironies, it is the Democrats and Obama who want to end it - not the Republicans.
The solution is a compromise akin to the Simpson-Bowles Commission.
That means tax rate reform and entitlement reform. The military is 18% of the budget and is assaulted with 50% of the Sequestration cuts. It is an obscenity.
If the Republicans in Congress don't unscrew this mess, they will lost the House in 2014. Mark my words.
