you can't believe the right


finger pointing,mis-information and always a negative attitude seems to be the driving engine of the republican party! which by the way is at an all time low in the polls!(roughly 24% and dropping! I am commenting now on the sequesta and a typical elected offical comment at the time of passing and now!
paul ryan=(we needed to pass that sequesta bill to stop the out of control spending}
it's obama's fault now!
Here's what experts told us last fall.

"While both parties are culpable for sequestration because the Budget Control Act passed Congress, the president proposed it originally and ultimately owns its outcome," said Mackenzie Eaglen, an expert on defense with the conservative American Enterprise Institute who advised the Romney campaign. "That is because he alone can lead by calling the party leaders together for a resolution today if he wanted as president."

Other see the two parties as co-owners of sequestration, especially since Republicans in Congress voted for the law that set up its possibility. In the House, 174 Republicans and 95 Democrats voted for the law, while 66 Republicans and 95 Democrats opposed it. (Final tally: Passed 269-161.) In the Senate, 28 Republicans and 45 Democrats voted for it, while 19 Republicans and 6 Democrats opposed it. (Final tally: Passed 74-26)


hmmm seems we have a truth prpblem on the right!
