    @ shifting the blame to Obama.

    It's so clear that the GOP wants austerity so that it will damage election success of Democrats in 2014/16.

    Cantor wants the sequester and general austerity to hurt people. and he wants it to be Obama's fault, which it will since he's president. Republicans know this. Everything that happens between now and 2016 will be Obama's fault, forever and always, no matter what the reality of the details is.

    This is what we're dealing with here.

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.

      when the sequester was 98% of what Boehner wanted - and we have the videotape to prove it.  

      What is it with right wingers?   They think video has a shelf life.
