Of all the things that we pay for from the federal government they chose to cut these programs, that's too bad. Unfortunately we don't have the money anymore to pay (or borrow) for everything we have in the past.

Please remind me again which politician came up with the idea of sequestration? And which candidate said during the campaign that it would never take place? Oh, that's right, George Bush and Mitt Romney, I forgot.

What does smaller government look like? The budget standoff between President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans means Americans may soon find out, and the picture the Obama administration sketches is downright scary. *************** THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING

"OOPs, in fact it was Obama himself that came up with the idea of sequestration!" That's a bunch of bull plop. The only reason we have sequestration is because Republicans refused to pay the bills for they already borrowed and spent and forced an artifical crisis by refusing to extend the debt limit. These cuts will lead to further unemployment. If you are a republican or a conservative and want to know who is responsible for our high unemployment level, look in a mirror because it's your policies that are slowing our economic recovery.

How come in 2007 under a $2.7 Trillion Federal Budget we were able to provide all the services "chicken Little in the White House" is saying will go away? Since 2007 under "Chicken Little" our Federal Spending in up $800B per year. How did it get that high? Harry Reids continuing Budget Resolutions signed by Obama! We need to go back to Federal spending levels before the "Obama Spending Increases"

Since 2007 under "Chicken Little" our Federal Spending in up $800B per year. How did it get that high? ---------- We started paying for Bush's wars. And BTW, Obama didn't take office until 2009. Not 2007.
