Why? Obama promised to let those evil Bush tax cuts for the rich to expire. He said he wanted real spending cuts. He said that he didn't create the sequester and promised it wouldn't happen. He said that 10:1 spending cuts for tax increases was a grand bargain.

Let's hold Obama to his renewed promises!

let the tax cuts occur and the spending cuts to take hold. Then do a deal for Obama's signature Buffett Tax and all the glory he afforded it in exchange for sustaining our military (like Obama also promised).

Then some of the 47% that love free things from Obama so much will have some skin in the game ;)

Let it go off the cliff. Everyone gets what they want - spending cuts, tax increase and an end to war. Nirvana!

Seriously, I’ll take the tax increase to have the pleasure of watching the govt dependent ox gore flowing in the streets. I drive my car another 100,000 and watch the multitude of grasshoppers freeze.

What’s that German word again? Schaden-something...

Presactly. At least with sequestration we get some social spending cuts with our tax hikes and defense cuts. I am sure that, otherwise, any “cuts” will be quietly put back in later. Furthermore, under sequestration, at least the tax hikes will be across the board and right into Obama’s precious forty seven percent.

Of course he will. Surrender is the only negotiation tactic he knows.

Maybe Colorado is on to something. Before committing economic suicide, smoke a bowl legally.

I don’t care what they all do anymore. I have lost all my fight. Raise taxes til it hurts and it still won’t be enough. They will always be back for more. I want the whole country to feel major pain. That is the only thing that may bring the voters to their senses.

Ok I voted Romney . Saying first.
Part of me thinking of those suffering now who voted Obama in ‘08.
4 years is not long enough punishment . 8 would be better to help them understand consequences more .
Imagine graduating and not getting a decent job until your 30. Living with your parents till your 35.
It gives me some ease that the punishment fits the crime.

I’d be interested to see what sort of deal they could come up with that they think would delay the day of reckoning. It’s coming, and probably would be no matter what happened Tuesday.

The DC Hacks used this sequester deal to up the Debt Ceiling after the 2010 elections.
Remember the GOP Kabuki Dance?
Get ready, they are about to hoodwink us again.
And I don’t mean the democrats. I mean Bonehead and Cantor and the
GOP. Greece is coming to America, sooner than later.
