Response to Vattel (Reply #1)

4. Saying that 'Obama proposed sequestation' is like

parents proposing to pay a ransom to the people who are holding their child. Remember, the Republicans were at that point crazy enough to drive the country into default by refusing to raise the debt ceiling limit (for the first time in history). But I think people are getting wise to the Republican strategy of screw the middle-class and the poor just so the 1% gets richer.

And they are also getting wise to the Republican 'plan' to let the Democrats propose a solution and then just flatly state 'no, that plan is a total non-starter - try again', without the Republicans ever coming up with a plan of their own - other than 'shrink the government down to where we can throw it out with the bathwater' - get rid of SS, Medicare, Medicaid, public schools, the Post Office, etc.
