  •  BOTH parties voted for the sequester (3+ / 0-)

    Fully half of the members of the House Progressive Caucus voted for the sequester.  

    That's a profile of a party that doesn't stand for anything.  

    Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.

    •  So what. (0+ / 0-)

      It reduced the military budget by a lot. Do you want a bigger military?

      •  ??? (0+ / 0-)

        It hasn't reduced military spending much at all.  That's supposed to be the next round, and predictably, Democrats and Republicans are doing everything they can to stop that round of cuts from taking place.  

        But seniors, college students, people in the armed forces, working people, poor people?  They get the screws.  

        Further, the sequester is responsible for all of our political paralysis for the last two years.  Democrats who voted for that law handed Republicans a club with which to beat Democrats over the head for the foreseeable future.
