Basically it is a reduction in spending. It was,and is touted by both Republicans and Democrats.

Why we even had our former Congressman Connie Mack IV propose the 1 cent reduction for every dollar spent on anything. Do you remember the expensive mailing piece he sent out? Really, the same thing as sequestration.

The biggest folly of all this whether Dem or Rep is we do not have to eliminated the debt at all. What has to be identified is what debt level is sound enough to be carried by the country. Just like it is in most peoples personal incomes, a company's revenue versus expenditures, or a government's. Debt has practically always been carried by this country some for over 100 years. I give you the example of the communication tax that ceased being charged about 2006 from the Spanish American War.

EXPATINASIA your ignorance of reality is shining through once again. Sequestration was the Obama administration's idea. Proposed by then budget director Jack Lew in 2011. White House officials proposed it as part of the agreement that resolved the 2011 debt ceiling fight. It was meant to act as a spur to make a bipartisan supercommittee reach an agreement on a package of spending cuts and tax increases that would reduce the national debt over time. Get ur facts straight. The facts are undeniable it originated from the Obama White House. Lets be honest for a change expatinasia and stop calling others ignorant when you are clearly, once again, dead wrong.

"Where is the public outrage at the actions of the President and the Executive Branch of Government regarding sequestration?" Evidently, Joe, you are unaware that the sequestration was the result of bi-partisan legislation. Your belief that it was created by the President is based on ignorance.
