10. Means nothing. It was a Republican-forced idea.
I think your memory of events must be fading. The House and Senate Republicans played chicken with the country's economy, threatening to crash it. Democrats only agreed to the sequestration to keep the Republicans from ruining the full faith and credit of the United States. Democrats made sure that it included spending that Republicans like.
The current scare over sequestration is nothing but an ongoing echo of Republican hostage taking. If there were no Republicans in Congress, the country would be a lot better off. I doubt they are stupid enough to force the sequester go through though.
Democrats would drop it right now. So yes, it is a Republican idea.
