AS i recall the sequestration was suppose to be across the board, not spesfic to the military. If Obama has put it all on the military that is his doing not ours.

Either way the Sequestration needs to stand forever.

I am sorry but that is not correct.

The Republicans overwhelmingly supported and voted for the 2011 Budget Control Act, which brougth us Sequestration. Boehner, Ryan, Cantor, and all of the other GOP heroes knew the language burdened the military with 50% of the cuts, and they also knew they had already cut the military by $487 Billion before Sequestration.

Boehner bragged that he got "89% of what I wanted" with the 2011 "deal."

I have no illusions of what and who Obama is. However, it is my own party that allowed the military to be screwed over and who will not lift a finger to stop this madness.
