5. The sequester will fuck up the country

There have been reports that Congress is looking at allowing the administration some leeway in applying the budget reductions. If this legislation passes, it means Congress is cowardly abdicating their fiduciary responsibilities and having Obama determine funding priorities.

I sense this is a political trap, because however the administration prioritizes, the Republicans will be able to criticize the decisions to cut budgets of programs deemed to have a lesser priority.

It would be the equivalent of giving the President line-item veto power.
