Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Sequester THIS!

Anything Congress does, Congress can undo.  For instance, say, the Assault Weapons Ban.

The Sequester is a made up crisis (like the fiscal cliff curb) that can be unmade by Congress.  We are starting to reduce the deficit anyway.  If we can get the economy going again, even more will go away.  If people are back at work they won't be claiming unemployment and food assistance.

Simply repeal the damned sequester and then fight over the budget they way James Madison intended.
