Obama to Make Sequestration Cuts as Nasty as Possible
The White House has an obligation to make sequestration cuts as nasty, painful, and inconvenient as possible. See, this fight has never been about what to cut, but whether to cut.
If Americans see that Washington can be cut through sequestration without it being painful, Barack Obama loses. He must make it horrible on the public so that the public doesn’t ever want to cut spending again. It is in his interest to do so.
His fear monger these past few weeks have been predictions of what he knows he will do so he can claim he was right and taxes must be raised while spending must never be cut.
