His Idea: Why Did Barack Obama Propose It?

his idea

Today, Barack Obama spoke out about the pending sequestration flanked by first responders and others. What he did not mention was that sequestration was President Obama’s idea.

Today, President Obama said:

Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded.

But sequestration was his idea.

Border Patrol agents will see their hours reduced.

Why then did he propose sequestration?

FBI agents will be furloughed.

So, Mr. President, if it is so bad, why did you propose the idea?

Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go.

Again, why did your team propose the idea?

Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country.

Why then did you propose it?

Thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off.

Why then did you propose it?

Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare for their kids.

Why did you propose it if that would happen, Mr. President?

Hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings.

If all these things would happen, why then did your team propose sequestration? Were you not being serious when you proposed it or are you not being serious now? You got your debt ceiling increase. You got more money to spend. All because you proposed sequestration and now you want to back out of it.

Sorry. You made your bed. Get some sleep.
