Sequestration: It’s All Going According to Plan
March 1, 2013
There is not much reason to add to my previous piece on the sequester, as it is all going according to plan.
From the last article:
“The votes were all but designed to fail. Democrats assembled legislation to replace $85 billion in cuts this year with a mix of tax increases on the rich, corporate taxes and cuts to military and agriculture subsidies with no consultations with Republicans. Republicans, internally divided but desperate for some alternative to the Democratic approach, offered legislation that would have locked in the cuts but would have given President Obama near carte blanche to decide how to mete them out.
And fail they did.”
