Garbage. The GOP is trying to punt as a way of avoiding some portion of the blame once the public goes ape once the cuts kick in. Reid is right to force them to stay on the field. Deciding how the cuts should be divided up is Congress' job and for conservatives to try to give that power to Obama demonstrates how their values are become squishy when its convienent.
The left (obama) is the one saying we will have to cut, police and firemen and teachers while not saying anything about cutting NPR or foreign aid.
You cannot have it both ways.
If Obama is running around saying they are cutting the wrong things (not real cuts, we'll still spend more) but, is unwilling to say what cuts he will make; that is NOT leadership that is just slimey politics!
Newsflash spanky, that's how the bill was written AND PASSED by Congress.
I swear you morons have a problem with reality.
Ya, I guess the wingnuts are soooo freakin stupid that they would draft a bill to doubly give PotUS discretion on the cuts.
Seriously, you idiots are ridiculous.
You have it wrong as to how the bill was written. The specific cuts are left up to the executive, Obama.
but, please. Go find me the section of the bill that gets rid of 10,000 TSA workers, 5,000 border patrol agents, and turn dangerous illegals out onto the street. Please do so.
