Either they have that spouse mentality where you support them even when you know they are wrong, or they don't want to be told they made a mistake when they voted, or they simply are deluded and will follow the man barefoot through every shard of broken glass strewn before them.
But it isn't just this sequester. This scam has been going on for a long time. And both parties are equally guilty of it. You hear VERY few "true" conservatives in elected office tell the truth about budget cuts. The ability to control is just too much for most people to resist. Term limits is the only solution I see to that problem.
