Should the members of Congress in Washington DC find a way to avoid Sequestration or should they let it go through? Is 17 trillion in Debt and hundreds of trillions in unfunded liabilities not enough to sober you from your binge?

LIBERAL - 3/3/13 @ 10:10 PM:
You would have thought after the elections at both the state and national levels that Republicans would have learned a very valuable lesson. If they lose the majority of their seats in 2014 effectively handing the majority back to the Democrats they have only themselves to blame. Just as the American government will not negotiate with terrorists, neither will the American people negotiate or support those who hold our government hostage simply for the sake of their own gain.

Though I know at some point President Obama may compromise in order to bring a solution to this problem I sincerely hope he heeds the warnings within in his own party. If he agrees to cut any part of Social Security in order to reach an agreement he will lose some of my support. Social Security does not add to our deficit, and should never be used as a bargaining chip with the likes of Boehner, Cantor, or Ryan. I will be highly disappointed if he uses such a method.


Significant cuts must be made and contrary to fallible Republican public opinion taxes must be raised in order to solve the deficit issue. You cannot logically expect to reduce a deficit without raising revenue to pay it down. Common sense. How this seemingly escapes so many bewilders me to the point of both discontent and disbelief.
