Why aren't the Republicans trying to repeal the Sequester?

The House Republicans cry about the Sequester and try to blame Obama for it, but they haven't tried to repeal it. That tells you everything you need to know. Republicans know a repeal would be signed by Obama. They think the American people are so stupid that they will blame Obama for something that he would gladly sign out of law.

If the Republicans don't try to repeal, we will know for sure that the Sequester is the Republicans' fault. We will know for sure that they really wanted it to happen.

1. Excellent question--Why isn't Obama Asking for Repeal, either?

After all, he signed the bloody thing!

It's called a con...the long game is to steal your Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Until they succeed, they will all persist in these games of deception and coercion.

2. Two reason (1) republicans believe in austerity...

2. Obama wants them to negotiate for something else. They will naturally oppose anything that Obama wants.

4. Of course they wanted it to happen but it cannot be only their fault

because they lacked the power to do it on there own.

The chain of hostage takings should have been nipped in the bud from the jump but instead shenanigans ensued and have been cheered every step of the way.

5. IMO: The Republicans want the Sequester

They to hurt the U.S. citizens for voting for Presided Obama. They are sure that they have the Conservatives in there area brainwashed enough to keep voting them. They will keep at it till we are in financial hell. That way we get punished and they can try some stupid half-baked scheme to "Save the Country".
