@repjustinamash Sir - whole point of sequester, as u know, was to avoid it, BECAUSE it's devastating. Need to pass balanced buy-down.

Er, no. Let's recall what President Obama told the editorial board of the Des Moines Register (it's on tape):
“So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, THE SEQUESTER IN PLACE, the commitment of both myself and my opponent — at least Governor Romney claims that he wants to reduce the deficit — but we’re going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business (deficit reduction)."
I know only one Jay Carney and he is a liar.
