Spending grows every year
This will only cut 2.4 percent of the entire budget, and keep in mind that the spending increases every year. The media is spinning faster than the liberal politicians. They make it sound like doomsday, but it is only a pimple. The Republicans have already passed a couple of bills in the House to replace the sequester, but the Democratically controlled Senate refuses to even vote on them. Looks to me it is the Democrats who refuse to compromise.
