Funny how Obama is so concerned about the economy and Sequester that he has not met ONCE with the GOP to discuss it since Jan 1st. And, he is so concerned that he chose to go on yet another Vacation.

Democrats already received new revenue. Where are the cuts? Why can't the media do its job? These cuts were what the DEMOCRATS wanted. How does this become the fault of Republicans? The media is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democrat party.

clnorth: "Where are the cuts? Why can't the media do its job? These cuts were what the DEMOCRATS wanted." Both the Democrats and the GOP voted for these cuts. The fact that the GOP won't even consider meeting Obama part way is the reason they are to blame cuts. They think giving up 3% on people making more than $400K is a concession? That was crumbs for their wealthy patrons.
