  •  The sequester is miserable I grant that. (1+ / 0-)

    However given the vile GOP behavior I would say its amazing that Medicare and SS were protected and that there were equal cuts in defense for the first time.

    Perhaps the defense cuts are one of the things prompting the attempted coup by the GOP.  Or maybe it could be enforcement of reforms in the financial sector.  Or the advancement of sustainable fuels and energy conservation.  It could be the empowerment of constituencies long left without full participation in our government.  Maybe its the diplomacy to work to remove the occasion for war.  It could be many things that have driven this gambit.
