As for what's in the sequester, the Democrats and Republicans both demanded a bunch of gigantic, stupid cuts that both side hate.
You couldn't be more wrong. As was delineated in Woodward's book, the two sides had a deal in 2011 but the Prez decided to up the ante on taxes by $400 billion and Boehner couldn't get more than the $800 billion in new taxes thru the House. Then, and only then did the admin/dems propose the Sequester but thanks for playing revisionist history with us
