How do they keep up with the lies??



The latest lie is that it is Obama's "sequester" when the President does not have the power to write such laws, even if it was his idea? That is the job of Congress. Then the President signs it into law, as he did with the Budget Control Act, which contained the "sequester" provision.

<snip>
The sequester was part of the Budget Control Act, passed in 2011 with bipartisan support. In fact, a larger share of House Republicans voted for the bill than Democrats: 174 (73 percent) voted for it and 66 against, while Democrats were split 95-95. In the Senate, 28 Republicans voted for it and 19 against, while Democrats supported it 45-6.

-- Voting in support of the bill that contained the sequester were Reps. Boehner, Ryan, Cantor and Sen. McConnell.

-- Speaker Boehner said of the bill including the sequester: "I got 98 percent of what I wanted." Given their highly amped up disdain of the sequester now, I find it hard to believe that this was the 2 percent he didn't want.

1. Obama allowed them

They painted themselves right into a corner. Problem is the only ones who will suffer are wage earners, because jobs are the only thing being cut.

2. They don't. And it's FINALLY starting to be a problem with those assholes.

They lie, they lie about their lies, and they lie about changing their lies.

3. They don't... And they don't care...

They simply make shit up as they go along and could care less if it matches with anything they said before... Repugs lie, it is what they do.

5. They no longer bother to keep their lies straight

because they know most of their base can't remember what they had for breakfast, not what lie they were told yesterday.

Sadly, they're right about too many of them.
