WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- House Speaker John Boehner will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. Eastern to discuss the across-the-board budget cuts known as the sequester, his office said. Without a deal, $85 billion in gradual budget cuts will begin on Friday,

1/2 percent — your figure is just the division.
Because every time the democrats want to steal and spend more of our wages, we always get threatened with the same old thing. A gazillion teachers will be lost. Old people will rot away. Children will be begging for food. The earth with rip itself in half. Bla blas bla. It's always the same old story. Mankind will cease to exist if they don't get more of our money to buy votes from the freeloaders in time for the next election.
They said the same things about the stimulus. They said the same thing about free birth control for loose woman. They said the same thing about Oboma care. They said the same thing about tax increase. If we didn't give them everything they wanted, time itself would cease to exist - and all us people would DIE a horrable death!!!.
Obama would probably pull it 100% out of defense...and then blame the Republicans for giving him the option.
I think you have it exactly right, even the timing.
Anyone who’d play golf with Obama gets no respect from me. Talk, maybe that goes with the job, but you don’t beclown yourself in the process.
Exactly. They - both democrats and republicans - got the money they wanted from us. They're both happy.
So what if us tax slaves have to cut back to bare bones? It's not about us. It's about unlimited power and luxury for them, and they're not going to give any of it up for anyone. We'll just have to get used to making our bricks without straw.
Good one! It even looks like the crybaby!
“If it’s at 4PM, it’s after the stock market closes. So whatever Boehner says, it’s probably not going to be good for the markets.”
That was my thought. All Obama has to do is tell Goldman Sachs to start a sell off, Wall Street will correct and Obama gets to blame Republicans for the loss of retirement income for the middle class.
Just like 2008.
Tammy Faye all over again...
(without the mascara)
Oops. Still half a percent is much ado about nothing. According to the MSM the world will end — OMG we’re all gonna die. Yeah right, Obozo, Boehner, and Reid. Total Bravo Sierra and boob bait for the low information voters.
Boehner better watch out. He might get a shoe thrown at him. Either from a reporter or a conservative.
I’m really hoping the sequester happens.
And I want the republicans to take credit for it. This is the first of the steps necessary to prevent us from hitting absolute bottom.
I too am hopeful Boehner will do the right thing. And I believe he will.
..... Of course if this country actually survives the end of the Obama Calendar on March 1st ..... we will find that the reason this country didn't collapse is because of the incredible leadership capabilities of our Dear Leader and also because the bean counters miscalculated the date and then insist that the end of all things will definitely happen a week or two later. Well ... that is ... if the Republicans don't stop their unpatriotic treasonous stonewalling.
The Rats are trying to scare people about the budget cuts, well now maybe the Repubs will scare people about what happens if there are no cuts. That is my hope.
Yep. 85% of the American public believes we have a spending problem. If the Republicans stick to their guns and actually do something for US rather than Washington, people will FINALLY have some one to vote FOR.
Even though this is all theater for the uninformed voter (there are no "cuts" in spending), at least it looks like the Republicans are on the working citizens side of this debate for once,
Love the analogy....how true
“Lets start a poll on which minute of Boneheads speech will contain his surrender to the Obamadork/felon/cretin.
Boehner is slime. Gutless slime. Cojoneless slime.
Pure and unadulterated drunken slime.”
Lets me honest, you just described every politician.
