    If we can win the argument that the sequester is stupid, then we can win the argument that what our economy needs is more investment, not less.

    Replace the sequester with an infrastructure/job-training stimulus package.

    Of course, even the Democrats wont go for that. Cuts are what the people are demanding. Not jobs. Or bridges and roads. Or an affordable education. Cuts! That's the obsession of the American people.

    •  That can backfire, the sequester is the result (0+ / 0-)

      of the whole absurd theater involving the catfood commission and it is stone-cold impossible to lay it entirely or even primarily at the GOPs feet. They can simply refer to and republish historic facts.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
