they can only change it, with another law.
Obama already said that he would veto any law that would change that.
All the repubilcans have to do is raise revenue or taxes, to prevent deep cuts in defense spending. They want everything their way, just cuts on programs, no taxes. What do you expect Obama to do cut safety net in half. He is putting pressure on them to raise revenue. Don't forget the first half that already passed was all cuts, no revenue increases. If repugs can't raise revenue, they are to blame for sequester.
